Opening party art show SCULPTURES IN WOOL

It's almost April, but I am still reminiscing about the opening of my art show on my 45th birthday early February. What a party! So many lovely people showed up. 
I was overwhelmed by all the love and attention I got. I am glad my husband took some photos so I have a better image to hold on to than the foggy one in my head.


This is the wall in the foyer. I printed four of my photos on black wallpaper.


What a thrill to see the name of my website - finally ready - on the wall.



Getting a big hug from one of my oldest friends.


So happy to finally show my work to everybody I love.


Here are a couple of pics from my guests.


I even gave a speech. Which is kind of against my nature, but I am so glad I did it. I just had to explain. At 40 I finally realized I had always wanted to be an artist. I started to take art classes here and there, and I discovered the art of needle felting. Some of my work might not be that easy to look at, because a lot of my dolls are pretty sad, but they are a part of who I am and I am willing to show that part now.


I concluded by thanking a bunch of lovely people; my husband Greg for his love and support, my children Ila and Imre for their patience, my friend Marieke from Woolwoofles for inspiring me to make needle felted dolls and my father Peter for letting me show my work at his club Sugarfactory.









I've been spoiled with flowers, books and other lovely things. 
Thanks to all who came to my opening party at Sugarfactory!
