Felted Wool

After 20 years designing canvases for the needlepoint industry, Liz DeVree decided to switch gears and work on things she loves - felting, creating with her hands - looking at nature for inspiration.

Artist's Statement:
"Interpreting nature has always been the heart of my art.

Right now I'm exploring working in wool- I find it magical how I can turn wispy wool into solid creations full of color and texture. I use the ancient process of wet felting which consists of selecting fibers and manipulating them with my hands, soap and water to become something completely different. I also create by needle felting which uses fine, barbed needles to form the wool into solid pieces. Most of my art pieces are a combination of the two techniques.

This transformation continues to amaze me, and because of the variability of nature, no two pieces ever turn out the same which keeps the process exciting and fresh."
