Please join us in welcoming the newest member of the Department of Top-Notch Textile Art: Northwest Arkansas-based fiber artist Dani Ives, who creates awesomely realistic needle-felted animals as well as plants and even desserts.


Ives describes her method as “painting with wool,” in which she applies her love of animals and her background in biology to build intricately layered portraits of a variety of flora and fauna.

Many of the animals Ives creates are commissioned custom pet portraits, which are available here. She also sells original pieces and prints of her work via her GoodNaturedArt Etsy shop.

Follow Dani Ives on Instagram to keep up with her latest creations, including real-time process videos like this:
