Hello there, I am a fine artist based in Chester with a focus on creating cute cartoon style felted creations.

I have sold custom creations all over the world as well as developing new felting techniques. I believe in using all-natural materials and that needle felting can be learnt by anyone with a little bit of time, patience and determination.
