aBOUT: I am an illustrator based in the South West of England. I specialise in the art form of fibre art, in particular the combination of needle felting and wet felting. I simply love exploring the felting process and enjoy manipulating the fibres to create atmospheric textured illustrations. My work is influenced by storybooks with a wildlife theme as well as fairy tales and folklore. I can offer the ability to illustrate stories with both text and image.
