Amy Wright Long

Amy Wright-Long is a needle felt artist based in Austin, Texas. Her education includes illustration classes at Carnegie Mellon University and fashion history at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. She discovered needle felting in 2016, and after working creatively for many years in other mediums quickly realized that needle felting offered her unlimited potential in expression.

Many of her creations are whimsical fantasy creatures inspired by Muppet creator, Jim Henson and his collaborator Brian Froud, and other Nordic illustrators known for their interpretations of Scandinavian mythology. Amy became known for making realistic opossum families and other realistic woodland creatures, along with her “Night Friends”, a series of fantasy moths and creatures of the night.
