Marie is a fibre artist living in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. She creates original artwork, combining wet felting, needle felting, fabric collage, free motion machine embroidery and hand stitching techniques. Marie grew up in Scotland and was taught traditional wool crafts by her Gran.
As a Mum of three she transitioned her hobby to business about 3 years ago. Her children were growing up and she had a dream of creating art for a living rather than returning to her science career. It’s been a very steep learning curve! With a keen interest in colour and texture and a passion to learn new techniques, she has been developing her style ever since.
Nature inspires her: walks in the hills; big skies and cloud drama; rough coastlines. Being immersed in our beautiful countryside and visiting the seaside makes her happy. In her work she recreates that feeling of wonder, evoking the beauty of our wild spaces, with contemporary felt, textile and embroidery techniques.
