Rosemarie Péloquin's needle-felted portraits represent character rather than physical likeness. She uses the malleability and texture of wool to create heads that appear eerily paused in mid-thought. The expressions of a moment in time are what draws us to these characters and we become complicit in their story or, they in ours.
Rosemarie carries her tiny toolbox of barbed needles in her pocket. With these wands she sculpts fragile moments that tug at our remembrances. Her work emerges from a background of design, teaching, coaching, travel and family. It is fuelled by a passion for discovering connections and the belief that Life's richness is found in the ordinary.
