Bat Girl with Orange and Black Lolly by Kerry Schmidt
Medium: Wool felt, vintage doll dress wih little stain
Kerry Howard Schmidt creates whimsical needle felted characters with an overly animated edge. Her life as an artist began nearly 40 years ago when she was taught wood carving and sculpting in bread by her mother.
She draws inspiration from being a mom and living in a household with four dogs, a bunny, a turtle and two lizards. Kerry feels the best part about making her characters is making people happy. When she’s not felting her inventive creatures to life, she enjoys shopping, traveling, spending time with her family and play board games.
