Earth Wind & Fleece
About the Artist:
Susan Trask is an aircraft mechanic by trade, and loves to work with her hands. She raises alpacas at Earth Wind and Fleece, a small farm in Lovettsville, Va., and hand-dyes her alpaca fiber along with other fibers and textiles. She loves to create unique things with fiber, including her one-of-a-kind felted scarves, and other functional fiber art. The scarves are a diverse and expressive fusion of color and texture, reflecting something about those who wear them: free-spirited, dramatic, confident, flirty, colorful, fashion-forward...
Felting is a magical tactile experience that provides me with endless opportunities for satisfying my creative spirit. I'm fascinated by many things, including alpacas and color. Transforming a pile of fibers into coherent textiles amazes me every time. My work is free-form, fluid and intuitive. I rarely begin with a preconceived end in mind. My hope is that when you view my work, something awakens within you, touches your spirit, and enriches your world.
