Saturday Giveaway: Nushkie


We have a beautiful Saturday giveaway this week from
Rebecca of Nushkie Design. She is giving away a simply beautiful dusty rose blessing fairy (pictured above) to one of our readers! Rebecca’s shop is filled with amazing needle felted art and toys for children, she has created a truly magical wonderland of fiber creations!

About the Artist:

I was inspired by the love of my now 6 1/2 year old daughter, Eva…aka, Nushkie… to create natural toys and homemade clothes for her. My favorite material for toys and collectibles is wool.

I am a native New Yorker, transplanted to Los Angeles. I have enjoyed an extensive career in the arts, from the opera and theater to film production to graphic arts. I live in Reseda, CA with my husband and beloved daughter, Eva. In this quasi urban setting, I have planted 14 fruiting trees and planted food bearing plants everywhere to create an edible landscape and naturally beautiful and rustic setting for my child to romp and graze. I began mastering my skills with fiber in 2006, when my daughter began her Waldorf journey and I became inspired by the art incorporated into Waldorf education.

My goal is to create soft sculptures, toys and works of art of the highest quality and from natural materials that one can feel…with the fingertips, with the eyes, with the heart and with the soul. These standing and hanging figures and “sculptural wool paintings” do not attempt to recreate the look of paint with lots of intricate detail, rather they act more like sculptures. I am greatly inspired by Rodin. Each piece is three-dimensional, and in each of the sculptural wool paintings, the focal point seeks to capture an emotional moment …usually between two beings. Sometimes they’re human, sometimes magical beings.

I am hoping that in these impressionistic pieces, and in all my work, adults and children alike will see the movement of the characters and feel the love that exudes from them. I believe that in our challenging world, going back to what’s pure, simple and childlike may help us find the imagination to make change reality.
