This Alley Cat portrait in wool and felt was popular at a local craft exhibition I have just taken part in.
A companion for the ginger cat I did a while ago
This cannon was captured from the Russians in Sebastopol in 1860 and given to Ely City by Queen Victoria after the Crimean War in recognition of the successful formation of the Ely Rifle Volunteers.
It has been decorated with the flag of Ukraine.
Ely Cathedral has been a place of prayer and pilgrimage since the 8th Century.
I have decided to work with a new medium for producing paintings ,sculptures and craft work.
Wool is a wonderful, natural medium, best known for lovely clothing but also used for painting sculpture and craftwork.
Here in England we have factories that are still producing beautiful wool both for spinning into fabric and unspun for artists and crafters.
I have been using dry felting techniques ,
This is some of my work, I am improving with practice.
