Artist Profile – Michelle Johnson – Fiber Wearable



Returning to Pearl for the second time, Michelle takes traditional techniques of wet felting and mixes fibers of silk and wool to create hand-felted silk.  Her experience at Kansas City Art Institute provided a foundation for fiber techniques that she employs in her studio to this day.  Michelle is a member of the Surface Design Association.

  1. I love Michelle’s work. I recently had the good fortune of taking one of her workshops, and as she said “she can teach anyone”. It was wonderful fun, and she is a master of her craft.
