I create needle felted dogs.  I'm inspired by all of the beautiful adopted and soon to be adopted dogs in the world, brimming with unconditional love.  I start by wrapping wool around a wire armature, adding thin layers to build shape and muscle then securing it with a barbed needle.  The personality often emerges as it takes form.  Once the desired shape is reached, color markings and details are added.  Each is one of a kind and is made with a happy heart.  A portion of each sale is donated to a regional animal shelter.
