Other work that I showed were paintings and felt panels that I have created using a combination of wet and dry felting methods, painting and drawing with the wool.
I have recently been working on a series of based on Ghost Eucalyptus Trees that impressed me when I was in Australia several years ago. These will be shown throughout October at the 'Branching Out' Exhbition at Birnam Arts Centre in 2018
Latest Work inspired by aspects of Water in preparation for the 'Water Marks' Exhibition in October 2016 at Birnam Arts Centre
Examples of Mixed Media work that I am exploring at the moment exploring 'Fusion' - combining Felt with 'Gesso' in order create ceramic like affects, transforming that which is soft and pliable into a hard firm object that can be free-standing, a means of fusing feathers, etc into the surface and creating a surface ready for drawing with graphite, or exploring the contrasts of soft v hard. The possibilities are endless as I continue to investigate the potential of working with this Medium in conjunction with from felt in readiness for the one-day workshop that I shall be running at the 2019 Scottish Felters Summer School in Dunblane on Wednesday 7th August.
These are just a few of the initial investigations. In the next few weeks I will be adding to the collection, so watch this space!
