She and her husband own and operate Grey Fox Mercantile, a storefront and workshop space, where they offer felting workshops, their own line of kits, and felting supplies. Erin lives upstate NY with her husband, two daughters, and their cat.
Needle felting allows me to explore animals that may often be out of reach. Through the slow and meditative process of needle felting, I am able to study and experience their form, texture and movement. The creation of each piece is an encounter as I come face to face with each animal, and I hope to share this experience of connection with the viewer.
