This month’s featured artist is Forrest Sounds. I first came across Forrest Sounds via Shing Yin Khor, aka Sawdust Bear, an extremely talented sculptor and illustrator whose work I admire. She recently shared some photos of a needle felt sculpture inspired by one of her Center for Otherworldly Science illustrations and I was hooked! I love it when artists inspire each other.

Forrest Sounds is the work of UK-based artist Kat Preston. In addition to needle felting, she is also a graphic designer and photographer. Her needle felt sculptures are outstanding – whether the subject is realistic or a favorite character, she has a great eye for detail.
