Penny has been a textile artist for 18 years, teaching and exhibiting at many art galleries, museums and hospitals. She places a great emphasis on every person’s wellbeing when participating in arts and crafts. Her pieces are predominately made from soft wool fibres which, when worked with soap and water, become a piece of fabric known as handmade felt. This heritage craft is thought to be around 6000 years old.
With a Masters in Art, Health and Wellbeing, Penny takes delight in working with small groups of people in creative environments. She enjoys watching them grow and experience a sense of achievement while connecting with an ancient artform.
She also recognises the importance of having her own space to create. Always happy when surrounded by nature this is reflected in her choice of colours and textures. She produces contemplative artwork with a nod to the unseen worlds of the imagination. Her work attempts to reflect the natural environment and how it can give us a sense of being part of a bigger picture. She often works closely with themes around loss but also the fact that nature uplifts us and cares for us too.
Handmade felt takes time to produce. Each piece is unique. Take time to enjoy what is around you and join the slow revolution.
