Tylar Merrill is a felt artists who enjoys creating new and exciting felt art by blending an array of natural materials.  Her playful approach often incorporates unusual found objects into many of her finished works.   Her artistry includes exquisitely crafted felt fashions, accessories and unique art objects. Tylar loves the process of felting and is always experimenting with new styles and techniques, exploring new themes in color, textures, and form. She has always loved color, fiber, and texture. Felting has given her the opportunity to combine and explore color, texturing, 3-dimensional form, folk art and fashion design. Tylar also highly values working with wool because it is a renewable resource and a healthy component of our ecology.
