So I've taken up needle felting. Well, felting in general. It's taken a while to get the knack, but I'm finally getting some good results! These are just some little experiments. I've got some completed whales somewhere, and I'm planning a batch of British Garden Birds. Photos to follow shortly. These can be made to commission and posted, so let me know if you'd like your very own felt animal!
Final piece from my PGCE course. I focused on looking at the Isle of Lewis, where some of my family live. I wanted to capture the wonderful rich colours of the sea and the sand (on a good day of course,) and therefore used both watercolour and wet felting to create the idea beautiful sunny days with the opposite of stormy, dark days.

Some completed final images for my 3rd year Degree project. Over the last 15 weeks, I have found the whale such a fascinating creature. My final piece has taken the form of a large framed wall piece, with one whale representing 300 in real life, reflecting the actual numbers of whale species left. There are 1,003 whales on the final 1.5 metre by 2.5 metre work!

This is the beginning of my work for my Final Major Project. It will be based on animal anatomy. This is just some early work, researching into styles.
The lioness is attracted to males with darker manes apparently, and their shoulder muscle in unattached to the shoulder, allowing huge leg movement. Just some facts!
