Tamara Tsurkan started painting as a child and attended an art school in her home town in Ukraine. Over the last twelve years, she has worked in several different media, and now mainly works with fiber (www.feltedanimals.com). She uses needle felting techniques to create paintings and sculptures from wool, then combines them with recycled objects so the finished work is essentially a mini-story. She enjoys using wool for her paintings because it allows her to create 3-dimensional characters in paintings that (literally) pop out of the frame. Much of her work depicts animals in unique and light-hearted, fantastical scenes.
