Terry Shearn is a Fiber/Textile artist who uses carded wool to create seamless wearable art using the nuno felting technique. Each piece is created from hand dyed silks, or silk lap with layered hand dyed wool roving that is worked and sculpted to create a seamless unique piece. Her pallet includes items such as wool locks, mohair, thread, recycled sari silk. As the fabric is created, so is the garment making it a flowing sculptural experience. Hats are created using hand dyed wool roving in layers to create a seamless form that is then sculpted into warm, unique hats. Terry also uses natural dyes such as Eucalyptus or Walnut to create both prints from the botanicals or dye baths in her process, creating earthy, natural patterns on wearable art, table runners, and framed art pieces.
