I’m Oksana Ball

A self-taught fiber artist and founder of “WoolPictures”. Since 2014, I’ve been exploring the “Wool painting” technique, also known as “Wool watercolor”. I like to describe it as using nontraditional materials like wool fibers to mimic traditional painting and drawing techniques. Instead of using paint and a brush, I USE 100% MERINO SHEEP’S WOOL to create the effects of layering color, creating texture, and providing depth. The images are crafted by layering wool fibers atop each other on a flat surface and pressing them with glass to remain firmly in place; after which, they are nicely framed. I DON’T USE ANY PAINT, WATER, GLUE OR NEEDLES! My goal is to elevate the craft of wool painting and push the boundaries of this fiber art to be more revered as an artistic medium. So, I create highly detailed pieces that often surprise people when they learn the medium is wool. My work consists mostly of landscape, flowers, birds and animal pieces.
