Connie Lobo, Fiber Artist

Connie Lobo

Artist Bio

Connie Lobo has lived the majority of her life in the rich beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and her work is deeply influenced by the woodlands, waterways and mountains that surround her.

She is a self-taught fiber artist, weaving her creatively through her background in knitting, crocheting, embroidering, as well as basket making and beaded jewelry. 

It is through a process called 2-D needle felting that she melds all those skills together, creating wool paintings that are layered, textured, and alive.

Her pieces embody the love, strength and inspiration found in a long-time circle of women friends, as well as shared wisdom from her years as a member of the Blue Moon Lodge and her studies with Grandmother Bernice Falling Leaves. This culmination tells her story and invites you to explore your own.

Connie’s art is a devotion to her spiritual path and she hopes that will shine through in content and style. She uses needles and wool to paint heartfelt stories, which she hopes connect, inform, remind and heal.
