Val's Art Studio
Crafts: Textile/Fiber Art
Val's Art Studio is run and operated by me, Val Hebert. I am a local Coronado girl, having grown up locally and graduated from Coronado High School. My two sons are fourth generation Coronadoans :o)
I create heARTfelt goods made of reclaimed textiles, embellished with needle felted love, one handmade piece at a time. I begin with recycled wool and natural textiles which I felt, cut, fold, sew + stitch up. Then, I needle felt into it, which means I use barbed needles to dry felt wool fiber into the creation. I stab, poke, mesh, + transform my sewn creations into something completely unique and artistic, and often very whimsical. I often finish with embroidered words or accents. Birds are a favorite subject matter in many of my creations.
I love what I do, I have an excuse to collect all kinds of fabrics, bits of this + that, plus I'm allowed to sketch out my ideas to my heart's content. My work is constantly evolving and I'm always excited about the next project, which I usually discover during a bit of daydreaming. I love the eclectic and unusual, and try to pull a bit of that into everything I make. And that makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something special and fun.
Most pieces are one of a kind, or something I create in a very small series. I aim to instill heaps of charm into each piece I create, a handmade keepsake for future generations. Made with so much care and love... from me to you.
You can always find some of my most recent creations at Austin's Gallery, located at 1024 C Street, Coronado, CA. http://austinsgallery.com/
