Kicka_Wendell_01_B

My passion is “playing with wool”, to create lightweight wearable art and home decor! It’s a process of discovery, exploration, and labor of love, never knowing exactly where it leads. The journey is full of surprises, and beauty! I use both traditional felt making and Nuno felting, blending tradition with innovation. Each piece is unique and handcrafted with attention to detail. Bold shapes, monochromatic colors, asymmetry, and quiet elegance define my style.

Since an early age, I have always been in search of beauty, and wanting to put my own spin on it! I was constantly designing and sewing clothing, knitting, and redecorating our home. Life brought me from my native Finland, through Paris to the USA.
   

For many years I decorated other people’s homes and was searching for my lost passion to create with my hands. Being rather spontaneous as I am, being a felt artist came to me in a dream, so here I am!! Very familiar with the felt material, a traditional Scandinavian textile used for clothing, accessories, and home decor, I jumped at the opportunity and started my journey discovering the ingenuity and uniqueness of felt fabric.
