I have been making felt for about 6 years moving on from a general interest in the creation of new surfaces from other things like fabric, paint, plastic, printing and so on. Over time my philosophy has been to make things that are useful but also are decorative and artistic.
I use wool as a palate dyeing and blending colour as one would with paint. I like to use fine silk in the nuno technique both using it as a stabilising background which causes the wool to shrink and the silk to pucker and create an interesting surface. Or incorporating pieces of dyed silk into my work thus altering the finished texture. Texture and colour are important features of the work.
