Portraits in Nature Fiber Art Series

Dani Ives’s residency project looked to create a series of needle-felted portraits that expressed her gratitude for and reliance on nature. Needle felting is the process of poking loose wool fibers together with a barbed needle. By carefully adding layers of wool fibers onto fabric, Dani created images that look like paintings in a process she calls, “painting with wool.”
