Happy Easter! I hope you are all stuffed with chocolate and are enjoying the weather! It’s been the hottest so far here in Wales, UK. Here is a catch up with what I myself have been up to over Easter.
I have indulged in buying some new felting needles from Heidifeathers, who always provides great needle felting equipment and service! These needles have 10 different types, 30 in total. I shall look forward to trying these with my projects!
Currently I am working on a scarf, the patterns are to represent dark skies inspired by Turner, Ian Aivazovsky and Moy Mackay. The scarf shall illustrate the one verse of Edgar Allan Poe’s poem Annabel Lee where things start to go dark, the angels in heaven are not happy and a cold wind blows out and kills Annabel Lee.
These are a few felt examples of colour experiments.
Still not sure what colours to settle with, but keep an eye out for my next blog post to find out!
Finally created a website to show off my work pieces. No blog rants, no retweets of other poeples work; purely my own stuff.
Take a gander at it, and keep an eye out! It’ll be updated as I go along.
A few pages of designs for the first image of the castle.
Needle felted self portrait to be used for the catalogue for the exhibition coming up in a few months. This took approximately four hours to do, and I may start taking commisions for portraits. Keep watching!
Testing my life drawing skills as they are not quite up to scratch yet. May add watercolour to this. Keep an eye out for it!
Just as a reminder, all copyrights of all images of mine belong to me. No one has permission to use my work in ANY circumstances, not even for your own purpose.
Well done to my class for the fund raising events to raise money for our third year grand final exhibition (which, by the way, is Mid-May). It is so amazing seeing the hard work and dedication of the students being put into this. We have sold ark work, things that have been made using laser cut, cards, zines, decorative hangings, and definitely a lot of cakes! Everything has been handmade. Here are some photos and the posters! (Scroll down further to see my own card designs of the sunflower and bee.)

If you are in Swansea (United Kingdom, not Australia) you can even buy our cards from The Mission Gallery and Hobos Exist shop.
These are a few of the many cards being sold and the valentines stalls.
These were my own card designs.
Also we sold calendars featuring artwork from students. These are still available for £5! My felted sunset got featured for August.

Well that is all for the exhibition update! More shall be posted.
