Soft Sculptures

My soft sculptures are created through the process of needle felting. Different from wet felting that uses water and soap, needle felting is a "dry" process.  The roving (wool) becomes felted when its fibers become entangled and meshed together using various needles with barbs that work to tangle the wool each time they are passed through the bundle of wool.  Combining different mediums with my needle felted work allowed me to create unique large pieces (often 10 times larger than the original subject) with Pop art flare.  Inspiration for my pieces are drawn from  Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg and are often related to nostalgic themes.

Smoking Hot Women

 The Felted Portrait

This creation was inspired by my Sepia Watercolor painting of the same name, Smoking Hot Women. This 2D image was enlarging to 75" x 53" and printed on canvas cloth. By adding mixed media elements such as roving for needle felting, paint, paper clay and various markers, it became a 3D felted portrait. Each figure was transformed with felted coats, hats, clay buttons and marker enhancements.

                                                                                      Grapes of Wrath

Grapes of Wrath is the first piece completed in a series titled "Kitsch Casa."  This series explores the camp home decor of the 1950s-1970s that you know, adorned your relative's walls and coffee tables.  This vintage decor would make most of us cringe at the thought that they were, in their time, considered chic.  I just couldn't resist but to bring back their presence in all their glory, now, super sized! Grapes of Wrath was primarily constructed using a needle felting process and incorporates mixed media material for the leaves and vine.

Grapes of Wrath will be accompanied by its stylish cousins of the same camp decor including the infamous panther table lamp, Siamese ceramic cats and more.  Help us all when I figure out which Avon perfume bottles to replicate!

Installation recognition and awards: 

The Grapes of Wrath was accepted into the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County's Material World: A Contemporary Fiber Art Exhibition, 28 Jul - 9 Sep 2023.

The Grapes of Wrath was featured in an online group exhibition and catalogue (FOOD Story 2023) pg.41.

Banana Bondage

This extra large needle felted sculpture pays homage to artist Maurizio Cattelan's  'Comedian'   from the 2019 Art Basel Miami exhibition. The story goes that the masterpiece (a real banana duct taped to the wall) sold for $120,000!

The absurdity of this sale has prompted a stream of like minded artists to get in on the fun. The actual needle felted banana measures 4'3" and is attached to a 60" x 48" texture painted canvas but don't be afraid to inquire on the price, it's available for much less than $120,000!
