"I had been a ceramic artist for thirty years, when I was introduced to needle felting. I fell in love with the medium. I stopped working in clay and have been solely needle felting for the past five years. I enjoy working with the wool and bringing the animals to life. I particularly like working with the different colored wools and making new colors to complement my work. I strive to bring to each animal its own personality and am rewarded when they bring smiles to the faces of others."
