Victoria Connors: Needle Felt Paintings
Inspired by the landscapes that she sees in her local community of the Finger Lakes region, Victoria Connors creates scenes from Cayuga, Seneca, and Canandaigua Lake. Combining skills learned from oil landscape painting and the techniques she learned creating felt hats, and using materials from local sheep and alpaca farms, the result is a needle felted “painting” that combines texture in 2D and 3D dimensional forms, giving her art its own unique appearance.
