Thingwall Felt

As a textile artist I work with wet felted wool to create pictures and accessories.

Using a combination of beautifully coloured wool and fabric to striking effect, my bags and scarves are made to my own designs.

Inspiration for my pictures comes from the local landscape, architecture and life and still life drawing.  I love experimenting with different techniques to create abstract and representational images. In particular, I make extensive use of prefelt to create shapes and use a variety of fabrics for shading and texture effects. After felting, I use techniques such as printing, stitching and drawing to enhance the design.
