About Butterflies and Daisies

Butterflies and Daisies

I love all things nature and I hope my art and craft reflects this.

I have always loved to draw and paint and even as a young child I was forever keeping notes about the birds I had seen visit our garden that day. I love all kinds of pets, gerbils, hamsters, cats, dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs and later when I had my own home and children we had a menagerie of animals even the odd goldfish or more!
My family hoilidays to Wales camping and caravanning increased my love of sheep. I always pressed my Dad to "please can we bring one home". I suppose my fascination with feltmaking was inspired by these holidays and being fascinated by the lovely woolly animals that were to be seen everywhere!
I also travelled and spent a year working on farms, agriculture and looking after the animals including hens, goats and cows.
I now live in the hills in the Yorkshire Pennines in a little farm cottage and this is where I create felted items and sketch the animals that have inspired me that day. I hope you enjoy my creations just as much as I enjoy making them!
