Working with wool tops, silks, viscose, threads and other wonderfully tactile fibres I create landscapes inspired by my love of rambling, human traces in the landscape, green lanes, old trees and sunbeams.

I work in series, going out sketching and photographing between bouts in my studio. My work is laid up flat on a table, several pieces at a time, building layers of wool, silks, threads and other fibres, which are then wet felted to create the fabric of each piece. Sometimes the felt is then embellished further with stitching, beading or needlefelting.

I occasionally run small workshops either introducing wet felting to complete beginners, or explaining the techniques I use in my work to felters who wish to develop their skills.
