I am a fibre artist working out of a studio overlooking Ullswater. Initially, I felted portraits of local Herdwick and Swaledale sheep using locally sourced Herdwick and Swaledale wool. I now needle felt a wide variety of different breeds of sheep as well as some goats, alpacas, hares, red squirrels, ponies and cows.
I am a member of the Cumbria Support Group of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. I have been needle felting my way through their Watchlist of endangered breeds since 2018 in order to draw attention to this important issue. Many of the endangered sheep breeds are the traditional wool breeds.
I am also a member of the Hare Preservation Trust and the Penrith and District Red Squirrel Group, two more species that need protecting!
I have a wide selection of greetings cards on my website (post free in UK and plastic free).
