Portfolio of felt pictures
Here are a few examples of my work, click on an image to enlarge.
I have been experimenting with felt making techniques over the years starting with wools found around the fields of my parents Dartmoor hill farm.
My style varies slightly depending on the subject matter and the feeling that I am trying convey to the viewer. Sometimes my work is about persuading the wool to do something that it inherently does not want to do. Other times I harness the wool's natural characteristics to emphasize a part of a landscape or sky.
I generally use a mix of wool from a variety of breeds of sheep, sometimes with a little silk for highlights.
