In 2015, Wakuneco stumbled upon needle felting in a handicraft shop and felt an instant connection. Inspired by her three beloved ex-stray cats, she decided to try her hand at crafting cat portraits from felted wool. This was the beginning of her successful wool-felting journey.

Starting with full-body mascots, Wakuneco soon realized her passion lay in creating lifelike cat faces. This led her to craft cat-busts resembling portraits in frames, leading to her signature ‘Frame Cats’. Initially, she made typical cat types, but soon shifted to creating individual cats with their own unique personalities and names.

What began as a hobby quickly gained speed when Wakuneco shared her work on social media. Requests for custom cat portraits flooded in, pushing her to start taking orders in August 2016. She worked on advertising illustration and practiced portrait painting setting up a background in portraiture heavily influenced her approach to creating needle-felted cat masterpieces.

While her creations may seem like very simple ornaments, Wakuneco believes they hold sentimental value, especially when made for someone and their cherished cat. To her, they are not just decorations but priceless treasures and memories that bring joy and happiness to both the creator and the recipient.
