Let me be blunt. I’m in love with Hine’s creations. She is a magical artist in sculpted wool.
Her wonderful “Knock Off Tokusatsu Kaiju Series, Fluffy Jamila” is exuberantly imaginative, playful and expertly executed, all at the same time.
I purchased one of her Red Ants at the Needlefelting Extravaganza show at the Gallery Hanahou in New York back in 2011 and I feel so lucky to have a tiny piece of her artwork in my home.
When I look at her artwork I feel overwhelmed. Behind the cuteness there is so much depth. So much narrative to imagine. It makes me feel very alive.
