I’ve been felting on and off for a few years now, but found myself doing more in the past few weeks. It’s a good way of dealing with stress, basically it involves getting some special wool and the method I use is to get a felting needle and stab the wool till it matts together.
This was mainly an experiment that turned out well. I don’t know what possessed me to create an actual heart, I didn’t want to create a love heart as in the end it wouldn’t be something that reflected me

I’ve often been told I’m a, “Landscape artist.” Although I prefer to think of myself as a contemporary artist who uses different media. Along with the Heart this was me experimenting with felting, possibly proving others point that I may be a landscape artist as the first thing I create is of course a landscape.
I’ve actually found myself making a lot of these. Along with landscapes something I tend to draw a lot of, since I learned how to draw them when I was 15, is roses. Like most art I never know how it’s going to turn out. I guess with making more of them, it turned out well. Then I tried focusing on how to arrange them. Decorating them in netting and adding sequins to make a bouquet seemed appropriate. I also created single roses (The bouquet ended up being an Easter present). The single roses are meant also to be presents. Surprisingly, I refuse at the moment to make black roses, although I suspect I will make some later as the only colour wool I will have left is black. For the moment though I’m focusing on the lighter colours, due to it being spring.
