Artwork 1: Maple Magic 

I spent many years in Canada and lived on a street called ‘Maple’ in the beautiful village of Hudson.  The repetition of a shape – some magnified – some reduced, and the effects of light on shapes is a reflection of the Kaleidoscopic visual imaging.   

 

Materials and Techniques.

Merino fleece wet felting, needle felting and embroidered embellishment, fabric patchwork frame. 

 

Artwork 2 Title: Dandelion Daze

I love dandelions! This is symbolic of an exaggerated kaleidoscopic close-up of the dandelion in full bloom.  You never see ‘dandelion yellow’ on a colour chart! 

 

Materials and Techniques: 

Merino fleece wet felting, needle felting and embroidered embellishment
