Felted Wool Pictures

Marie enjoys transforming topics from her sketches, watercolours and photographs into wet and needle felted wool pictures. Most of the pictures are built up using merino wool, and sometimes wool from rare breeds. Other textiles such as bamboo tops and silk are also incorporated into these pictures. Most of the work is available for purchase.

Two of marie's felted pictures were accepted for exhibition at the RBSA Friends Exhibition in June 2021.

Marie was delighted that her Autumn Badger picture was awarded a Highly Commended at the 2018 Ashby Art Festival. Also her Wensleydale Longwool Sheep portrait won the people's Prize at the 2019 Ashby Art Festival Exhibition and was selected for exhibition in the Sock Gallery 2019 Summer Exhibition, Loughborough.
