About me

About me

I am a Textile Artist creating landscapes in naturally dyed Felt , the fibres for which I dye myself in natural dyes many grown in my working dye garden.  Over the last twenty years I have evolved my own unique style which is created not only by the way I felt using fabrics and fibres  but also by my unique range of naturally dyed  fibres and fabrics    The way I work uses the ancient techniques of feltmaking and natural dyeing in a modern contemporary way and also has a minimal impact on the environment itself.   My landscapes currently range in price from £250.00 to £1500 and are in private collections world wide in Australia, Switzerland, Belgium, USA,and the  Falkland Islands as well as throughout the UK.  Many visitors come when my Summer House gallery is open for the annual open Studio event in North Wales Helfa Gelf  throughout September
