Ruth Packham's Profile
I am an Artist/ Maker and I live in a small village by the sea in West Wales.
I am a print maker with a love of textiles.
Currently I am in love with wool and am taking a break from print making to explore the world of felt making.
My work is informed by my surroundings, the colour of the sky, the wind in the grass, the flowers in the hedgerow, the life of the beach and the flocks of Jackdaws that wheel around in the evenings. I take lots of photographs using my camera as a sketchbook.
I needle felted my first Brown hare because I was asked to, the same with the sheep.
My needle felted creations have evolved from taking part in Wool Fairs around the UK.
I am drawn to quirky images of animals and birds, sometimes I use these to make my work, sometimes I just make it up as I go along…
