About the Artist
A self taught artist and designer, Mary started Felted Heart in 2007, with a desire to stay home while raising her children. As a stay-at-home-mom, she was inspired by her children to find something she loved doing that fit her new lifestyle. Mary discovered felting from recycled sweaters, creating her first product, a child’s felted wool poncho, which she still enjoys making today. Mary loves all things woolly, recycled and fun. What warms her heart you ask? Spending time with family and friends, long runs, good coffee and of course crafting beautiful things! She currently lives in Atlanta with her husband and two children and two dogs.
