Von has worked in the arts since graduating from Huddersfield University in 1984, in both the performing and visual arts fields. Paper became her thing for a while and she even went back to college to qualify as a Bookbinder but not until she found the splendid art of needle felting did she feel truly at home. Now Von needle felts her own characters inspired by her dog Barney and his ability to change personality according to what he thinks it might get him.
All dogs are individual and unique one-offs. They are needle felted from 100% wool with glass eyes. Their minute clothes are painstakingly made by hand, (even the tiny little knitted jumpers) and supplemented with carefully selected additions from the likes of Paul, Ken and Sindy dolls.
