When I married into my current husband's family and was faced with the fact that 16 or so Suffolk sheep fleeces were thrown into a ditch each year, I took up needle felting. Now I sculpt with wool!! I use primarily Suffolk/Hampshire wool because of its wonderful needle felting capacity. The best I've ever used, I must say.
It's so exciting to watch an animal take shape under the needle. And because I can create very dense legs, the animals stand up. What a relief! The results are magic for me to behold.
My favorite work is making sculpture portraits of people's pets. In addition, I enjoy creating wildlife sculptures, whether they are particular to me or my clients.
There is a pleasant exchange of energy in the creation of the animals and in the relationships I develop with clients. I am grateful to offer my work for sale.
I also spin wool from the Suffolks and from various other sheep I have or fleeces that are gifted to me: Jacob Sheep, Cotswold, Llama, Icelandic, etc.
