Creatures and art dolls and felting, oh my!

Hello! My name is Sarah Strub, but most people call me Wolfie. While I've been an after-hours artist for many years, I've recently made this my full-time job! I studied illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art from 2006 to 2010, but the world of freelance has never been my style. Instead, I find that my best work comes from roaming far and wide and seeking my own inspiration.

That's how I started My Arm Can Fly, the studio and shop where I create a variety of fantastic creatures out of wool, resin, and anything else that suits them! My art dolls are inspired by everything around me. That can mean nature, but it's also fantasy, toys and dolls, kitschy decorations, you name it. It's hard to explain, but easy to show--in the last 6 years I've completed more than 200 different creatures, and these are just a few of them!


On top of my own work, I'm passionate about bringing art and crafting into everyone's lives. I want to use my creatures and techniques to help other people learn and grow into their own unique art. I offer tips on needle felting and design and all the advice you can stand in hopes of empowering other people to create. I hope that my Patreon can become a hub for those who want to make their creative ideas real, and with that in mind I'll be making tutorials exclusively for this page.


I'm using Patreon to bring more of my creatures and creations to life. As a working artist, I pay for all materials out of my own pocket on top of the hours of work I put into each of my unique dolls. With your support, I can widen the scope of my work with new materials, new colors, and new ways to bring them out of my studio and into your life! I know that not everyone can afford to help me, and that's okay. I'll still provide the same updates and photos I've been putting out for the last two years through Tumblr, Facebook, and Instagram.

If you can help out, you'll gain access to even more behind-the-scenes updates and even have a hand in the process!

I'll be looking to my Patreon supporters to vote on color schemes, sketches, and other ideas as I move forward. Higher reward levels include goodies like tutorials and wallpapers, coupons you can earn over time, and a free drawing every six months for a special hand-made creation! The top reward levels will even let me help you--"Apprentice" and "Collaborator" backers will get personal advice and critique on their work, and up to 10 lucky people will get an annual selection of top quality materials from my personal fiber stash!

Come see what I'm up to, and let's talk about art!
