The figures were embellished on a needlefelting machine from silk and merino wools to create a backing and then I drew with my needlefelter to create the human figures . They were to look hand drawn and shaded. Each figure is a progression from the right figure as scared and broken, to a shy but upright stance to a head held high form that’s leaving the canvas. Each figure is heavily felted and small details were defined with  1 thread of black DMC. They are all shaped and trapuntoed to give natural hills and valleys of form in a 3D format.

There is a quiet, haunting quality/feel to this art for me.  A moment in time...
