We moved from Germany to Illinois in 2012, when my husband accepted a job offer here. In 2014 I began felting figures which eventually evolved into the “Gieblinge”. The Gieblinge are little gnomes living deep underground, each one has a particular story which describe their line of work. I am self taught and enjoy the learning process and the challenge to bring my ideas to fruition. . For me, felting is relaxing and sparks my imagination.
