I have several new felt pieces to show at the forthcoming ABC Art Trail, all nature inspired.
I am still drawing inspiration from the powerfully restorative hours I spent at Haddon Hall in Spring 2017.
One of a series of wild flower field felted artworks…
These depict what I see in the edges of the meadows at Haddon Hall.
A beautiful textural depth of greens with little pops of petal highlights.
For my latest felted embroidered work I have gone back to my eternal source of inspiration, Haddon Hall.
This time I was inspired by wild fields full of daisies and buttercups.
I have tried to convey the depth of colour and texture using several layers of soft felting in numerous shades of green and brown, machine embroidery for the leaf detail and hand embroidery with silk threads for the flower heads.
