How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

A Herefordshire shepherd of rarebreed longwool sheep, a spinner, an occasional weaver and an avid felter. I absolutely adore the tactile loveliness and sustainability of wool. My main work has been crafting lush felted curly rugs and cushions for homes (no sheep are hurt in the process) and silky nuno felted scarves and homewares. Currently I am experimenting with felted sculptures and panels.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I have done art 'on the side' my entire life, in between the moments of raising children and pursuing a totally different career. Now professionally retired I finally have the time to pursue and explore my obsession with textile art.
