How long have you been making felted scarves?
I have been an Artist for many years although felting is a relatively new medium for me.
How did you get started?
I had primarily been working as a sculptor for several years using mainly the local limestone. I decided I needed a break from all the dust and demanding physical activity that sculpting stone requires. A close friend of mine was working with wool and encouraged me to take a felting workshop with her. Immediately I was attracted to the vibrancy of the colours of the wool and the paint like qualities of blending and combining fibres. A new world opened up within me and a curious delight with this medium commenced.
What is your greatest inspiration?
I am attracted to the mystery of the creative process itself and possess a deep affinity with nature and an innate love of colour.
What is the greatest challenge to owning and operating your own business?
Balancing the demands of the real world with my creative life requires focus and discipline which I struggle with at times.
What is the best thing about owning your own creative business?
Having the freedom to express myself creatively and as Joseph Campbell says to be able to ‘follow my bliss’.
