Needle Felted Wool Landscapes
Using delicate layers of dyed roving, Jaana's needle felted wool textiles are built and anchored one wisp at a time with a notched needle until the image becomes fabric. With these materials, one can manipulate light and color in much the same way as an impressionist painter, with the resulting layers of fiber blended by the viewer’s eye. The organic textures of wool and wood energize each other as the textile is recessed into locally milled or reclaimed timber.
