Gypsyharte Fiber Arts

Felting with the heart is what I do. I have been creating art all my life. Felting wool is my current passion. I get to take wool and fiber; and shape and create it into something new and different. I love making whimsical creatures or stunning scarves. I’m inspired by myth, fairy tales, history and nature. I love colors, textures and textiles. They all have their own voice its wonderful to see them taking shape, morphing, changing, coming to life. I want folks to fall in love with my work as they pick them up, hold them or try them on. I love it when they say “This is amazing!” and “You made this!?”
I begin this heart-felt journey four years ago; and I just want to keep exploring my medium. Wool is universal and ancient, its old and new, its organic and surpasses cultural barriers. I have expanded into the wider world of fiber. I take care to learn about the animals that provide it. I have began cleaning, processing and dyeing wool. I’m exploring traditional wet felting and Nano felting. I have entered various contests; and much to my surprise, won and placed in them. Now, I’m learning to spin! I was blessed with a beautiful studio this year and I’m slowly turning it into an inspiring space to create. It’s not about where I’m taking my art, it’s about where its taking me.
