I am a self taught artist, specialising in needle felted sculptures of birds and animals. Capturing their shape, pattern, movement and character is of particular interest to me.
The simplicity and versatility of the technique and the tactile and therapeutic nature of the craft is especially appealing to me. Sometimes, I embellish work with scraps of fabric and thread and I like to mount finished pieces on found natural objects. I exhibit and sell work at local galleries and craft fairs and I also enjoy running needle felting workshops which cater for all abilities. I am also a member of the International Felting Association.
