Description

Felted landscapes are needle felted (a dry felting technique using barbed needles) onto a pre-felt backing.  When the scene is complete the piece is wet felted using a hot soapy water and agitation.  The piece will shrink approximately 20% during wet felting.  It is rinsed and laid flat to dry.  The final step is to steam iron and occasionally free motion stitching is done to accentuate some areas.

The beauty of the North Carolina Mountains is unparalleled. Working with wool fiber roving and other natural fibers I try to create 2D works of art that depict the beauty I see.
