I often get told that my pictures are so lifelike that they think it’s a photo. That is the response that I hope for. In doing what I do, I hope to convince the observer that using wool instead of paint is a genuine art form and a wonderful medium to use, and not just a craft.

I have been creating felt landscapes using various types of wool for 4 years now. The pictures are made by wet and needle felting the wool fibers together using soap, water, and lots of agitation. I love being out in nature and I often use where I live in Scotland as inspiration for my creations.

I enjoy using various types of wool to show the different textures in the landscape. My favorite wools are Merino, Teeswater, Finnish, and Corriedale wools. I sometimes use natural wool fibers, but more often use dyed wool. I like to think of all the colors of wool the same as any artist would use a paint pallet. Wool is such a versatile medium and one I hope to continue using for many years to come!

This is a most glorious example of needle felting and it's terrific composition as well.

The deep blue of shadows in water is captured beautifully but it's really the light through the shallows that calls my attention

You nailed it perfectly! It looks like the fog really is hovering in a 2D plane above the land!

Love all of the colours in this piece- there is nothing that beats watching the sun set on one of the Scottish isles.

The color of the grass with all it's different shades of green is spot on for that place.
