My work is created from the wet felting techniques which uses water, soap and lots of agitation of wool roving. I strive to create artistic pieces either as wearable items or fibre artwork. I explore dynamic designs with an emphasis on rich colours. Felting has an incredible ability to have unique visual textures particularly when fine silk fibres are layered on the surface of the wool. The effect of silk fibres will dramatize colours, transparencies and give stunning highlights. I use high quality merino wool and alpaca which gives wearable items an incredible next to skin softness. These natural fibres are known for their warmth. I create warm soft wraps and also lighter flowing pieces by using the nuno felting techniques. Nuno felting uses silk gauze as a base upon which wool and silk fibres are layered very thinly to achieve a wonderful drape. My larger pieces can be worn as wraps or hung as a wall hanging or a window display.
