I have divided my work into three categories, the main category is Felt Art which contains many land and seascapes, views of Dumfries and Galloway and explorations of subjects and places I find inspiring.
I have a section for Felt Garments for wearable art such as scarves and tunics. Again these are based on a response to and inspired by the colours and textures of the land and sea.
Felt Accessories is where you will find items such as vessels felting kits again inspired by my surroundings here in the Mull of Galloway.
Please browse the full gallery below or select an individual gallery to see specific items.
Please contact me for information on COMMISSIONS – I am able to recreate and make an artistic response to a subject of your choice. Price on application
