Megan is a self-taught artist with a passion for felting. Living on a sheep farm in Australia for ten years taught her to appreciate excellent quality fiber. While there, a studio was built and being surrounded by wool, mohair, and alpaca, Megan felted hats and shawls while she spun, wove and knit her own wool. Megan returned to Canada with her precious supplies, and in 2009, began to combine her love of portraiture and needle felting. She strives to create realistic portraits using this amazing technique.
