Share my adventures and mis-adventures as I create original art in various media. I work in both 2D (oil, acrylic, pastel, pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, and mixed media) as well as 3D (polymer clay, paper clay, ceramics, and felting). My favorite subject is animals. You will find comments on my experiences with several art products and methods.

I made this little needle-felted cat for a custom order from my Etsy shop. It's a portrait (a loose one, obviously) of a dear pet who has passed on, so I was honored to make it.
This little guy is 5" long, not counting the tail, so the felting of the details was a bit tricky. The cat's name was "Captain Nemo" and I wish I could have met him as he looks so sweet in his photos. I hope his mom will be happy with him.
