About

Ruthfully allows me to offer my work globally

I am a typical artist/maker in as much as I am great at holing up in my studio making things and not so good at getting them out there.
I live in the wilds of West Wales right on the coast where there aren't too many people and hence I have to have a way of selling my wares further afield...Etsy gives me this.
I have a background in Fine Art but my passion is all things textile.
I work using low tech techniques...screen printing very small print runs, sometimes one off prints made using paper cut stencils; felt making using UK and often locally sourced wool fibre.
Feltmaking has become my preferred technique.
All my work is original and I very rarely make more than 10 of 1 thing...mostly because I am bad at production line working and there is always a new idea to realise...
I work from a studio which is right behind my house where I can go and immerse myself in work whilst listening to audio books.
I take lots of photographs which I often use as inspiration for my work...my current and fairly long standing passion is bird life.
I take part in a number of 'wool' events throughout the year in the UK, such as Wonderwool Wales and WoolFest in Cumbria as well as selling in craft fairs.
I often have project on the go, I recently worked with feltmakers in Italy to create a giant felt shell, funded by Wales Art international.
I teach felt making Nationally and Internationally as well as taking part in workshops myself as there is so much to learn.
