Felted Paintings

Felt works a lot like watercolour as the colour tends to change and the fibers move during the felting process, so you are never quite sure what you are going to get in the end. Using the same principles of design and composition, trying to create an illusion of form and perspective is certainly challenging to achieve in wool! I use colour (wool roving) and line (silk) to lead the viewer through my artwork, and although the pieces have a fragile appearance they are, in fact, quite strong due to the blending of the fibers during the felting process. (Wool is one of the oldest and strongest fibers known to man).

Using various natural fibers such as silk chiffon, bamboo, merino and corridale wool tops, sari silk threads — and anything else that will felt — I can create textures and colour juxtapositions that are surprising and exciting. I hope that my work gives you great pleasure and might even take your breath away for a moment.
