Featured Artist - Marina Shkolnik
Marina lives in Moscow and is a self taught fibre-artist. For the last three years she has created unique and stylish pieces using varied felting techniques.
My inspiration comes from the beauty of the surrounding world, as well as the unique colour combinations created by nature itself. My city, as well as my country, is so multi-faceted and varied that every day I find inspiration just by walking along the streets and parks. I hope that the beautiful handmade accessories I create capture people's attention and can inspire them too.
