"Welcome to My Garden"
Framed size - 29 x 23
For sale at Twigs & Leaves Gallery - Waynesville, NC. Phone 828-456-1940
When I dyed the wool nepps in these soft colors, the first thing I thought of was creating a felting using them as sweet peas blooming riotously against a white picket fence. I added the roses in the background, and decided a willow tree would complete the peaceful garden scene. I'm pretty sure there's also a hammock hanging beyond the willow in the shade. If it were truly my garden there would be!
(Merino, Corriedale, MC-1 Merino Crossbatt, C-1/Pelsull wools and hand-dyed wool nepps were used to create this piece)
This page is for my work that is currently for sale. Each felted landscape is professionally framed under non-glare glass to protect the needle felted details, with the title and a brief description of my felting process attached to the backing. Pricing is based primarily on the amount of detail work in each piece, as well as size. Please contact the galleries for prices and more information. Also, I am always happy to do a custom commissioned piece if you'd like. Thank you for stopping by!
*** I am currently working on pieces for the Southern Highland Craft Fair in Asheville, NC, October 19-21. I will be in Booth #405, downstairs in the arena, and would like to invite you to come and see me at the show! I will be posting photos of the works I'll have there as soon as I get more of them ready!
"Summer Musing ~ Grotto Falls"
Framed size - 24 x 20
For sale at the Southern Highland Craft Guild - Biltmore Village, Asheville, NC. Phone 828-277-6222.
Grotto Falls is one of my favorite waterfalls, and a lovely place to be on a hot summer's day. A fine spot to sit watching the water rush over the rocks, musing about Nature while the scents of damp earth, mossy rocks and all things green cleanse your senses, and rejuvenate your Spirit.

"A beautiful view "
This piece is fairly small and the edges are nice, so I decided to have it framed with them showing. It has been stitched onto a linen mat board and framed under non-glare glass.
