The author offers an insight about her work and her creative history as a felt artist. Instead of translating her own interest through felt work, the author discusses that she intends to provide visual references that encourage viewers to exercise their own creative potential. She also shares that the use of narrative imagery and the plastic properties of felt she used to create eccentric shape and dimensional form are equally important in her work. The author describes her work as something that becomes an indicator of something beyond itself, but at first glance looks or behaves like a piece of cloth.
