Everything I do relates to my instinct to communicate and connect with my surroundings.
I passionately believe in free choice for everyone and fulfilling my desire to join with others in a collective force, enhancing our joint and individual lives.
I just happen to create realistic and spirited fibre animal sculptures, forging a moment in life so that each can experience or recapture their connection with a chosen soul.
What connection can I bring to life for you?
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Stephanie Lester, and I create masterful, lifelike sculptures that exude the essence of the creatures that are my latest muse. Each unique piece effuses a different emotion to everyone that views it, reflecting the individuality of the beholder.
What better way to showcase your love of animals than with a sculpture—a 3D portrait—created out of organic or recycled fibre?
I have been exhibiting my creations since the beginning of 2018—mainly at shows, galleries and exhibitions, where I also demonstrate my techniques. I produce instructional videos to further promote the relatively new art form of needle felting sculpture and encourage newcomers to this art.
