Moira West

My working methods include hand-made felting processes incorporating traditional and contemporary techniques. Wool fibres predominate, integrated with plant and cellulose fibres, to create unusual shapes and textures. My work invites interaction and personal confrontation with life and its unexpected pathways. My aim is to create striking, fascinating and unusual fibre art, combining textile technique with a diverse range of challenging materials, inspired by nature and a desire to push boundaries whilst creating an impact to promote greater understanding of human frailty.
