Mary Black Fiber Art
Highway 47 Peralta

Felting is an old technique, yet fairly unknown. Using fiber from my own Alpacas and local sheep or goat fibers, I "paint" pictures of animals using a barbed needle. I typically use felt as a base, then "draw" or "Needle Felt" the Portrait. Since they are nothing but animal fiber, it is recommended to frame them without glass, allowing the fiber to breathe! Each piece is one of a kind!!
