Northmoorarts was created following a short period of intense felting creativity
in 2018. My artistic background was previously confined to photography, membership
of the Royal Photographic Society being gained in 1991 following City and Guilds
photography courses at a local gallery and adult education venues. For many years
this remained my main hobby but with more time now available in my life the emphasis
is on felting art.
Day courses have provided interludes to working life; jewellery making, stained glass,
print making, willow weaving, mosaic workshops have all been enjoyed, but nuno and
wet felting was the start of the new focus in my artistic life. Wall hangings from
my own design were created as part of day courses with Vivienne Morpeth in Barton,
more recently producing a dress and waistcoat. My products and designs are now developing,
predominately created at home. Inspiration centres around my own photographs but
also from the landscape, predominantly of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, photographs
in magazines and newspapers and my own garden and imagination.
