Could sampling be your creative super power?


Worldwide Colours of Felt

Thrilled to have had my hand felted, custom room screen "Arbutus" included in the latest international publication by Ellen Bakker of Textiellink in the Netherlands.

Ellen says "The book ‘Worldwide Colours of Felt’ surprisingly bundles together unique and beautiful works of felt from over 40 countries to form a feast of colour and inspiration. Over 500 artists from across the world add colour to this remarkable project. Felt objects, clothing, figures, jewels and utensils are displayed in cheerful red, cool blue, serene white, mysterious purple . . . In ten chapters, every colour will fully manifest itself. Over 800 images are accompanied by portrait photographs of the artists and their web address."
