Welcome to my magical
world of sculptural needle felting!
...where wondrous fluffs of

popularity is sweeping the world. Nearly anything that one can
imagine can be created from wool using only single barbed felting
My specialty is needle felted dolls with a focus on
celebrity caricatures. My Felt Alive dolls are fully jointed,
solid felted wool and require no sewing, no stuffing, no painting, no
knitting or crocheting, no patterns and no wire armatures! That's
right, none of that! Shaping and sculpting fluffy, unspun wool
with barbed felting needles is nearly like magic.

there is rarely a day you won't find me poking at wool.
