ABOUT THE ARTIST
SCULPTURAL FIBER ARTIST
BASED IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA
Tracy Laasch is a mixed media/fiber art/needle felting sculpture artist in Phoenix, Arizona. Her award winning sculptures are on exhibit in multiple galleries, and collected by art lovers across the U.S. As an artist, Tracy explored many art forms throughout her life, but found her passion with needle felting, and it was love at first stab. Creating whimsical, lovable, story book style, animals that tell their tales in 3-D form, are the hallmark’s of Tracy’s endearing, art sculptures. Her sculptures feature playful, whimsical, anthropomorphic animals that are reminiscent of the sweet characters she read about in children’s books as a child. Created entirely by hand using armature wire, fine quality wool, barbed needles, and occasionally sculpting clay and/or vintage found objects used in an unconventional way, the sculptures are brought to life as extremely detailed works of art. Each completed sculpture is finished off with her signature artist tag, a hidden butterfly, and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
I love to see the smiles and laughter that my sculptures bring to people when they see and connect to them, and often their memories of childhood...
