Rowena - Fibre Artist

I Have a passion for Sculpture and Textiles, and I am constantly driven and exploring the unending diversity of the art of felting. I combine my love of Nature, and my need to create , through the media of fibres. The art of wet felting and needle felted sculptures, allows me to combine my two passions together, and dive further into the world of Art and Textiles. I have a current solo exhibition locally, and sell my work in various gift shops and through social media, as well as commissions. This will be my second year exhibiting at Staithes Festival.

All Season Arts

All the work exhibited is drawn from a love of gardens and the natural world with inspiration found in plants, flowers, birds, butterflies and bees. The mediums used are watercolours, textiles; mainly silk and polymer clay. Polymer clay is a relatively new medium which is pliable and can be moulded and blended into individual three dimensional forms which are cured in an oven. They are then used to create a range of gifts from pictures to jewellery.

Suzanne's Artscape

Since childhood Suzanne has always had a passion to create and paint, however after leaving school at 16 she decided to work in customer services, and spent a spare time painting over many years as a hobby. Around four years ago Suzanne decided to take the plunge and became a full-time artist, which allowed her to develop her skills with her favourite medium watercolour. Suzanne now successfully exhibits regularly around Yorkshire, and is selected for numerous art trails, and art fairs. Suzanne has also contributed to the Leisure Painting Magazine.
