A WARM WOOLLY WELCOME To You!
elt Artist" might seem a rather "woolly" job description, but that is exactly what I do - I feel my art. I am a FELTER who paints with fibre"and an ARTIST who felts paintings (rather hairy ones!)
Making something from nothing is incredibly satisfying. With just a few handfuls of sheep's wool I record textures and colours in the world around me - tree bark, clouds, pebbles, flowers - combining these with different scenes and situations to create my very own pictures and stories. Practising one of the oldest crafts known to man is pretty special too!

"You may look in front of
you, and on both sides, if
you like,' said the Sheep; 'but you can't look all
around you ...unless you've
got eyes at the back of
your head "
('Through The Looking Glass ')
ou will find my felt pictures in The Cygnet gallery, Shaftesbury, along
with a host of handfelted gifts - from scarves to purses, cushions to felted soap bars.
