Hello

I’m Oksana Ball

A 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.

LEARN HOW TO PAINT WITH WOOL

Painting with wool is very easy for the beginner. It isn’t necessary to be a painter or to know how to draw; you don’t even need any experience working with wool. To give life to your masterpiece, you just need wool, a picture frame, and your desire to create.

In my classes, I provide you with all of the materials and instruction required for you to create a one-of-a-kind work of art to cherish for years to come. I’ll guide you, step-by-step, through the basics of wool painting — in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Join the growing world of fiber artists creating amazing things out of wool!
