Thank you for visiting my website,
I am Naoko, Creator and Artist of Cooper + Prickle.
I create fibre sculpture and painting by poking wool thousands and thousands times with needles!
I first made a needle-felted sculpture of friend's dog back in 2017 as a memorial gift.
Ever since, I have been busy creating pet portraits for friends and family and people who found me on social network.
As well as enjoying creating realistic animal sculptures and paintings, I have also been working on original artwork based on my whimsical illustrations and drawings.
This website is launched to welcome you to my creative world, and hopefully to find home for my unique artworks.
I would also love to share the joy of craft, my methods and tips with like minded people and to inspire people to create something beautiful themselves.
My work is inspired by my favourite subjects, Animals, Nature and Wildlife, Anything Old and Vintage, Books and Stories.
I hope you'll enjoy!
