I make mosaics and wet felted pictures and am based on the Isle of Islay - Inspired by the sea and wild shores around the Island of Islay.
Mosaics made from vintage china, found items including sea glass and pottery gathered along Islay’s shores, and mosaic tiles.
Felt pictures created using merino wool and various threads and silks for embellishment, inspired by the colours of Islay through all seasons and weathers.
Much of my Time exploring Islay has been from a kayak, bike or walk. This has had a big impact on my use of colour and my love of including skerries in my felt pictures and blue iridescent tiles in my mosaics, inspired in particular by the beautiful South East coast of Islay.
I have been working with mosaic and felt for just under 3 years now, I am partly self taught and have also attended workshops to gain more skills and knowledge both face to face and on line.
