About my Art Journey

I fell in love with feltmaking about 20 years ago.  My passion moved from initially learning through making functional items which led on to a desire to create fine art works out of felt. This was the impetus for me to successfully complete my Masters in Fine Art

What begins as simple, raw materials of wool, paper, fabrics, inks and threads are felted, collaged, painted and stitched to be transformed into artworks that have a connection to the elemental.
