My name is Marina Shkolnik
I am a self-taught fiber artist.
The most attractive in felting for me is absence of any restrictions, models and standards - just follow your imagination and enjoy process!
My favorite technique is nuno felting because it offers such potential in producing a variety and richness of texture.
I make all of my items with use of the best materials only, such as extra fine Australian merino wool (maximum is 18,5 mic. - a low count of micron is more suited to items worn next to the skin since it doesn't 'prickle'), cashmere, silk, tencel, bamboo and many-many others from all over the world.
Where do I get my inspiration? I have tried many times to answer to this question ... the inspiration comes by itself, I take wool in my hands, I touch it, breathe in its smell, look over different colors and an image of the future product appears before my eyes.
