Artist: Joyce Compton
What kind of items do you make?
Needle felted & clay art dolls and felting kits. I also offer workshops.
What got you interested in your art of choice?
I was invited to take a workshop on needle felting and I fell in love with the medium!
What do you most enjoy about what you do?
The many ways that wool can be manipulated and coaxed into taking a 3 dimensional form never fails to delight me. Needle felting also has a very contemplative aspect.
What most inspires you?
I am inspired by color, texture, shape, anything that peaks my senses.
Do you have a favorite item or colorway?
I just plain like color! I go through stages when I might lean toward warm earth tones and then a period of soft pastels. It always changes.
What is something you strive to offer the fiber arts community?
The delight of creating, the exhilarating feeling of learning something new and using it!
Does being an indie fiber artist affect other aspects of your life?
Creativity cannot be extracted from any part of your life. The desire to create spills over into everything I do.
