I create felt/mixed media sculptural “Messengers” that amuse and delight!
This colorful gallery shows a sampling of sculptures (aka “Messengers”) from my 2nd Ewes Felted Artware collection…and more clues about how my brain works!
Each sculpture springs to life from my studio table as an idea and roughly shaped armature. I hand stitch and build the piece with morsels of recycled sweater felt and then embellish it with a wealth of surface design techniques. All of my sculptures include messages and image transfers on hand painted fabric, needle felting, beads, buttons, wire and all manner of treasures from my studio table.
Lavishly embellished creatures take shape, and acquire their distinct personalities, at my studio table along with their smaller whimsical fiber art cousins.
My 3 dimensional sculptures are meant to be picked up and considered from every angle in order to drink in the messages and love stitched into the piece, and to admire their riot (quiet or otherwise) of materials, textures and colors.
My smaller 2 dimensional “fiber art strings” are meant to be placed in a favorite viewing spot where their embellished colorful energy and positive messages can light up your space.
You’ll find my current collection of Messenger sculptures available for purchase over at my Moxie Messenger shop!
All photos in this portfolio (except “Take Off” Dragonfly) are by David Conklin who specializes in fine art photography and printing services. David is fantastic to work with and I love him dearly!
“Take Off” Dragonfly was photographed by Ken Rowe who created my very first set of professional quality photos in 2007 and helped me take another step towards showing my art to a wider audience! Thank you Ken!
