contact name: Dan Sattler-Reimer
Dan Sattler-Reimer; St. Paul, Minnesota; Materials: felted wool; Dan Sattler-Reimer has difficulty pinpointing what in his life directly influenced the things he creates: Was it growing up in a developing country surrounded by hardship? Or was it encountering a personal brand of hardship through recent cancer treatment? Whatever the case, what Dan believes now is that more often than not, the problems that we think we have can seem pretty insignificant when the bigger picture comes into view. In other words, life can be taken a little too seriously. Dan finds it helpful to have small reminders of that around. His felted creations are meant to have a spark of levity to them, to bring a smile. They are happy critters, solving problems in creative ways or just being a little goofy. The hope is that they bring joy to others.
