 "Dogs are miracles with paws."




I have a long standing passion for handmade crafts. It began when I started to make toys, mostly different stuffed animals, at age 7. I have also had much experience in knitting and wet felting having made clothing and toys for friends and family. More recently I have become very interested in needle felting. I have realized that 3-D felting art is very amazing. It still takes me by surprise how some light, airy wool can be turned into fine, firm sculptures.

I love to needle felt. It allows to achieve finer details, even capture the subject’s character. When we adopted Laina, a Pointer mix, from a shelter, she was bound to be the very first model whose miniature needle felt sculpture I created. It was humorous to see Laina sniffing her felted likeness, with suspicion, and everyone was taken aback to find a little "Laina" at my daughter's birthday party in a box where they thought the cake would be...
Dogs are adorable. Someone said that dogs can be “cooler” than people. And it's true! Their love and loyalty knows no limits. I feel it is incredibly fulfilling to make a dog’s felted figurine, when with patience the wool just comes alive with every prod of a needle. I truly enjoy needle felting dogs because it combines my passion for making crafts with my love of dogs.

I live with my husband, daughter, and dogs in Southern California.
