Projects > Wool Landscapes

One of Farmington, Maine's earliest industries was the production of wool, and now that winter has arrived, I find myself relying on this material in my everyday life more than I ever had before living here. My goal with this series is to depict the atmospheric quality of this wintery landscape through materials that have significance to Farmington and are also essential to winter survival. Each piece is created by needle-felting alpaca and sheep's wool onto wool roving stretched over a wooden frame. The piece is then photographed and printed on waterproof vinyl.
