Felt paintings

Katrinmania

My name is Ekaterina but my friends call me Katya. All my life I wanted to create something fulfilling and I found myself as an artisan just two years ago when I attended a felting workshop.The task was to draw with colorful wool a picture. That was the moment when this tiny piece of fiber created a sparkle and I fell in love with it. After this day, I find myself constantly rolling, as wet felting is a process where the wool has to be rolled numerous times.
It's really hard for me to explain how creativity is born using wool and wet felting. I start with a feeling or an idea and allow the material to guide me. This is such an exciting path that leads me to create beautiful wall hangings, clothing and fashion accessories.
Below are some examples of my work that are currently displayed in my etsy shop:
