Mountain Living Studio artist Michelle Timmons creates these playful and unique felt purses. Each purse is one-of-a-kind and carefully hand-crafted.
Discovering the art of knitting, felting and whimsical embellishing make creating functional art pieces very rewarding for Michelle Timmons. Her main goal is designing “one of a kind” unusual and individually unique hand-made knits and other art pieces that appeal to the eye and yet also have practical use. Having become disabled made a significant influence on her choice of knitting and felting as an art medium. Working with needle felting, beading, appliqués and creating unique designs provide a personal challenge and a means to continuously find new and unique ways to grow and express herself as a local artist. Her degree in Anthropology and love of various cultures are also influential in her design work and for up-and-coming projects. Each work of art comes from the heart, from her hand to yours. "In the rhythm of the needles, there is music for the soul." ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
