I am a Cardiff-based textile artist who specialises in feltmaking. I make fine, strong and dense felt and work mainly with Merino fleece. This is combined with other fibres and fabrics – silk most especially – to give variations of texture and weight.
I dye most of my materials myself to produce intense and subtle colours which blend and migrate in the feltmaking process to give exciting results. I often work on one piece of lightly finished felt, and cut it up and embed it in another piece; and I often embellish my designs with the use of hand and machine embroidery to provide detail, definition and depth.
This complex layering process ensures that each object is a unique and exclusive work of art.
