Pip White

Business name: Pippaluk Crafts
Pip White was born and brought up in Salisbury. Her love of art and crafts have been an enduring aspect of her life from an early age when she was first taught to paint and draw by her grandfather. It has only been recently her discovery of needle felting has allowed her to explore her talent in a very unique way. Her use of fibre forms an illusion of water colour or pastels and allows her to create landscapes and coastal scenes mainly from the south-west of England. The works are lovingly made mainly from Merino fleece, which is a particularly fine wool fibre, but also from more exotic fibres such as yak and silk as well as man-made natural fibres such as Tencel. The scenes are created from photographs of well known landscapes and coastal views.
