Stephanie Saleem,

I was introduced to art and craft at an early age, and this love for all things creative was nurtured by my supportive family.

I graduated as a certified Soft-Furnishing Seamstress. My education, plus a genuine love of hats provided me the opportunity to work with designer Stephen Jones of London, England. His collections appeared in London and Paris fashion shows. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to learn and be inspired by the professionals working in high fashion.

My favorite medium to work with is wool. The way I typically work with this material is by felting it with a needle. Additionally I am familiar with embroidery, beading, painting and lately pottery and metal clay. I was introduced to felt making in 2001, and since then have been inspired by other artists and the Fibers & Beyond group. My current work has been felted wall art.

I am inspired by the gorgeous West Coast landscape. As I am humbled by the giant trees and vistas of the landscape I understand how nature can inspire so many artists. I feel a strong connection to mother earth and through my art, I hope to share that with others. I intend to walk through life, as I do the local forests, treading lightly with care and compassion for my surroundings and fellow beings.
