Hello, I’m Marie, a fibre artist living in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
I create original artwork, combining needle felting, fabric collage, free motion machine embroidery and hand stitching techniques.
I grew up in Scotland and was taught traditional wool crafts by my Gran. As a Mum of three I transitioned my hobby to business fairly recently. My children were growing up and I had a dream of creating art for a living rather than return to my career in science.
With a keen interest in colour and texture and a passion to learn new techniques, I have been developing my style ever since.
Nature inspires me: walks in the hills; big skies and cloud drama; rough coastlines. Being immersed in our beautiful countryside and visiting the seaside make me happy.
In my work I recreate that feeling of space and wonder, evoking the beauty of our wild spaces, with contemporary felt, textile and embroidery techniques.
