Artist Profile: Sara Renzulli – Sarafina Fiber Art

We recently came across the Sarafina Fiber Art website, and have fallen in love with her work. Sara Renzulli, owner and operator of Sarafina Fiber Art, works with wool roving to create felted creatures from fanciful to very realistic. Sara’s vivaciousness and joy for life is seen in all of her work. The detail in each piece is striking, and shows her love for everything she makes.

Sara uses Strauch drum carders to blend her wool for needle-felting kits that she sells on her website. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced needle-felter, you can find anything that you need.

Sara specializes in creating animals, and brings them to life with humor, wit, and an immense amount of talent. Her skills elevate her felted figurines to a life-like state, complete with a sparkle in their eyes.
