Dani Ives

Genre: Fiber Arts

Dani Ives

Dani is a self-taught fiber artist, educator and author based in Northwest Arkansas. Her inspiration comes from a love of nature, science and a past career as a conservation educator and working with animals. After indulging in needle felting as a hobby and creating hundreds of three-dimensional pieces, Dani discovered the thrill of felting two-dimensional images in 2014. She found this form more challenging yet more artistically fulfilling. Over the course of a few years, Dani has developed a distinct style of needle felting that she calls painting with wool. She attempts to mimic traditional painting and drawing practices with nontraditional materials like fibers and textiles and loves sharing these techniques with her students. Dani has taught hundreds of students in workshops, classrooms and online courses across the US and internationally.
