Dani Ives | Fiber Artist
I'm a fiber artist who Paints with Wool through a process called needle felting. I use a barbed needle and wool fibers to make my subjects (mostly animals and botanicals) come to life. I used to work in the field of conservation education, so studying and teaching others about animals and how we can help them was my job for ten years. I loved it, and that work is still very important to me. So through my art, I hope to continue to foster the relationship that humans have with animals by creating realistic animal portraits with which people can connect. I also teach workshops across the US and internationally, offer e-courses and felting kits, and am currently writing my first needle felting book!
