Rocks, water, trees and sky - these are the subjects of my art. I am drawn to and draw strength from the natural environment around me. Through my work I invite the viewer to focus on the beauty that is all around us but is often overlooked. I hope to awaken the viewer - to see again or perhaps to see for the first time with new eyes, and having seen, appreciate what was always there. My chosen medium with which I depict the beauty of nature is itself organic. I work with sheep wool and other animal and vegetable fibres each with its own personality, its own ability to absorb or reflect light. Starting with a pile of dry fluffy wool and other fibres that I have dyed, I arrange them to create an image. Then using only my hands, some warm water and the magic that is feltmaking, I help the individual fibres to become a strong piece of fabric that hopefully captures in its image some of the beauty that is in my mind's eye.
