My art and me
"This was one of my first wet felted wool wall art projects I’ve done after being introduced to the technique.
After finishing it, it reminded me of one of the artists I met in Santa Barbara, California, when I used to work at the crafts market, making me notice that in most of my designs I was using circles.
And since then, every time I draw or create something I notice all the circles I incorporate in my artistic work. Maybe represents who I am inside somehow? What does the circle symbolise?"
