My name is Rebecca Knell and I am a fiber artist. What *IS* a fiber artist, you may ask? According to WIKIPEDIA It’s an artist whose medium is a style of fine art which uses textiles such as fabric, yarn, and natural and synthetic fibers. It focuses on the materials and on the manual labor involved as part of its significance. Kinda fancy sounding! Basically I use fabric, wool, lace, yarn… etc to make my art. And what is my art? I make soft sculptured dolls and needle felted dolls, as well as animals.
I get my inspirations for all my crazy characters from the city I live in: NYC! It’s a great place to observe the styles and tastes of the people around me. It’s a city filled with people with their own sense of style! I soak it all in and out comes my colorful characters!
I also have a huge love of animals. I’ve always dreamed of living in or near an animal haven, but living in the city (which I love so much!) that’s most likely not going to happen. So I just keep creating them and make my own animal haven at home!
All my creations are one of a kind and made from the heart.
My goal here is to showcase my work, show you my process in making my creations, provide some tutorials, and share other peoples great work that I find inspirational! Let’s have some fun!
Forever creating, forever learning, and forever sharing her love for the people and animals around me.
