As a  Feltmaker I am inspired by landscape. I use the colours of nature in my work which enhances everyday objects like scarves or book covers and lifts them into art. Like Ruskin I believe that things you use daily should be beautiful as well as utilitarian. Wool can be manipulated in so many ways depending on its use, a cushion can be sturdy and give comfort as well as being beautiful. Different wools react to the act of Felting in different ways depending on what is included with it, fine silk for a scarf, curls for a fringe for a cowl. Fabrics for surface decoration. Felt is the most versatile fabric, from oven gloves to gossamer shawls.
