Needle Felted Great Grey Owl and More

Michelle Liebgott-Osinga is a naturalist as well as an artist  from Lincoln, Nebraska. She gained a Bachelors Degree in Art at Humboldt State University where her primary focus was ceramics and also studied painting, drawing, biology, and foreign languages.

Michelle now works as a needle felt artist creating soft sculptures in her home studio that are inspired by animals and nature. Her sculpture are made of wool over a wire armature so they can be positioned to sit, stand or to hang on the wall. The polymer eyes, beaks, and talons are hand sculpted and painted by the artist herself. All her creations are incredible but I am in love with the Great Grey Owl shown at the top.

I hope you'll visit her online store - Plains Song Studio to see more of her amazing work. Currently, there are over 30 one-of-a kind sculptures available in her store including beautiful owls, birds, plants etc.

I love this artist work. She is really talented and creative. My favorite are the polar bears and the Snow owls on her Facebook page.
