YooMoo, a Japanese artist considers animals and humans with such care; using fabric as well as needle felting to create her treasures. This take on Frida Kahlo got us interested!
Stowaways Toys often have a veggie vibe. Their charming little faces give her veggie people real character and they look great in almost any setting.
We love felt artist Irina Valentina’s faceless girls with their stand out ribbons. They capture quiet moments of normality, but give them a sense of magic.
Karina Kalvaitis creates ‘lovely creatures for gentle souls’.
Her creations bridge the gap between realism and fantasy and evoke magical realms.
Hine Mizushima has been a favourite of ours for years. She mixes needle felting with the odd embroidered finishing touch and creates characters with a unique style.
Ryan Lytle‘s sculptures are big, bold and brilliant. Mashing creatures together to create godlike artefacts, his needle felted art is really dynamic!
