Textiles

I am a textile artist specialising in handmade felt creating both flat and three dimensional pieces which reflect the natural environment. I am also an experienced teacher and can discuss many aspects of the process if visitors wish to know more. I produce contemplative textile homewares and accessories to make one feel cherished. My work draws on a variety of skills from my experience of 3 dimensional construction and love of colour during my Fashion and Textiles degree at UCE, Birmingham. I also enjoy exploring the surface texture of wool and the possibilities of producing tactile surfaces reflecting organic, earthy surroundings encountered on long woodland walks. With a Masters in Art, Health and Well-being I am fascinated too by the therapeutic effect of working with our hands. I am delighted to be exhibiting with Warwickshire Open Studios for the first time this year.
