Freedom Felts was established in 2006 when Lisa stumbled across the art of needle felting. This art is relatively new and has been said to have started in the late 1980s.

 

Each woolen sculpture starts with washed, combed and sometimes dyed wool. Small sharp barbed needles are used to sculpt the wool together. Needle felting is a very labor intensive process which includes thousands of “pokes” with the barbed needles.

 

Over the years Lisa has enjoyed creating the animals and birds of the State of Maine. Lisa enjoys making faux taxidermy miniatures and also likes to use a bit of a sense of humor with her custom caricatures.  Custom commissions are accepted.
