I’m Lily and I create realistic animals out of wool and alpaca.
As an artist, it is a blissful moment when I breathe life into a needle felted sculpture. By poking wool roving little by little, I make it into the shape and add movement and emotion to it. Through years of trial and error, I developed my own method of creating long-haired animals. It takes quite a long time to felt long hair on the body; poke by poke and trim to finish the fur. The realistic and beautiful fur is the most notable feature of my work, and differentiating characteristic from others’ needle felted work.
These days my main interest is in expressing the beauty of natural fur of animals: its texture, color and patterns, and creating heartwarming work.
