Suzanne O’Brien

Suzanne O’Brien is a fiber artist and creates handmade wool felt gift items and accessories for her business, ‘ZanieCrafts’. She enjoys working with fine wool and silk fibers and uses the magical process of wet felting to make her ideas come to life. Suzanne learned the art of felt making while she was living abroad with her family in New Zealand. She enjoys creating with a lot of color, and likes to include reclaimed, recycled, and found items into her work whenever possible. Suzanne and her husband are Illinois natives, but lived in Kansas, Michigan, and New Zealand before coming to Buffalo in 2013. Suzanne and her family are very happy to be home in Western New York.
