I am a fibre and textile artist creating contemporary felt wall art inspired by the ever-changing Brighton seascape. My felt art gallery showcases unique handmade feltmaking using natural wool felting. These are rich in texture and depth using colour and fibre, resulting in a stunningly tactile piece of art!
Living in Brighton on the south coast of England, much of my felt art is inspired by the many moods of the sea; from the ferocious power of the waves to the hypnotic tranquillity of calm waters. Felt art is such a versatile medium for expression; the morning sunlight on a silvery ocean or the cold grey skies reflecting on a turbulent spiral of browns and olive greens, felt art can capture the unique mood of that moment. The sea is forever changing through the day and through the seasons and every day I find a new inspiration for my felt art.
My source of inspiration within nature is constantly evolving and I find vividly coloured cheeky monkeys and flamboyant flamingos and a host of other creatures in the form of wall art for kid's rooms have now dominated. The tactile quality of felt that I love is incorporated into the manes of lions and the flappy ears of elephants. In Summer I was awash with cheery sunflower brooches and poppy neckwraps, daisy chokers and red rose hair clips. As Winter Approaches my animal theme is reamerging as wearable art in the form of the ever popular quirky floppy eared hats! Mine however emerge from the fantastic breeds and canine personalities that I meet on my daily dog walks.
