Karen Price - Needle felted paintings inspired by Scotland

Forgotten Croft - I started with a base of white felt for this picture.
Lochside Beauty - This is another panoramic landscape, based loosley on a loch above Tomich.
Across The Loch - I began with a flat base of white felt and used fine merino wool to create the scene.
This is Fred - Merino wool and wensledale curls were needle felted to create the image.
Cosy Cottage - Merino wool was used for most of the picture. Flat felt was used for the house shape and fence posts.

Biography

Karen Price

I create needle felted paintings using fine merino wool and other fibres. This is a relatively new technique that is also known as dry felting. Instead of the traditional method of fusing the fibres together using hot soapy water and friction they are fixed to a base of flat felt by piercing with a barbed needle.
From a distance the pictures are often mistaken for paintings and that is why I call them 'needle felted paintings'.
I live in the highlands of Scotland and take my inspiration from the everchanging landscapes of the area.
The colours in my work are influenced by the Scottish artists JOLOMO who paints Scotland in a vibrant, abstract way and Moy Mackay who is a felt artist.
