Dani Ives known as @begoodnatured on Instagram, has certainly gone through an unexpected career shift. Growing up she was always interested in science, which led her to biology and conservation studies. Some years later, while working as a conservation educator at a zoo, she began to feel the urge to create come back. She had always been “artsy” but never nurtured her artistic tendencies. But when a friend recommended her to try out needlefelting something happened… She just couldn’t stop!
“There is something completely addictive with needlefelting”, she says in the interview. From the first day, a whole new world of needlefelting opened up, and she is now able to nurture both her creativity and love for animals and conservation using the same medium.
