Penny Irvine

Business name: Penny Irvine - Fibre Artist
I am a fibre artist living in Thurso on Scotland's rugged North Coast. I create paintings using the traditional techniques of wet felting, needle felting and raised and freehand embroidery. I form the contours and shapes of my paintings with my hands in a similar fashion to sculpting. I feel this gives me a unique connection to my work, allowing me to feel the depth and texture of each element and convey this through the painting.
