< Back to Artists

I started needle felting 10 years ago and have continued to develop my skills and explore the medium ever since. The free-standing pieces I created at the beginning have given way to sculptural pictures, and the intense focus on the animal subject matter has widened into placing them into a contextual landscape. My passion is now my way of earning a living, and you will usually find me and my work in my gallery and artists studio in Malton. I am a founder member of York Textile Artists, with whom I have exhibited across Yorkshire and the North East

Venue: Dunroamin, Chapel Yard TS13 5BS

Medium: Needle felting
