Ann's Profile

About

I am a textile artist who loves to work with wool. Why wool? As a child I was born and brought up in the Rhondda Valley, Wales. It was a wonderful close community where doors were always open. It wasn't unusual for sheep to walk in through the front door and out through the back. As children we'd pick fleece caught in the hedges and in our naive way spin and weave. I learnt to knit at primary school, to sew at secondary school and then I went on to study Textile Art at the University of Wales. I've returned to live in the Rhondda Valley to focus on my work with wool and silk, hand knitting and felting to make unique items that I hope you'll enjoy. I love both contemporary design and designs from the forties, fifties and sixties. I have a large collection of vintage knitting patterns and love to incorporate elements of them into my work.
