Inspired by her latest trip to the Outer Hebrides, the artist has created a series of wonderful new wool paintings.
Size 5" x 5", framed in a light wood frame and white mat to 9 3/4" x 9 3/4" x 1" Due to the size and nature of the piece, it is available at the gallery only, Cedar Lake Studios, 27 Ainslie St. N. Cambridge, ON
The Artist: Jennifer Budd, born in Scotland and now living in Ontario, is an award-winning fibre artist, whose practice draws on the ancient method of felt-making. “Painting with wool”, Jennifer creates vibrant landscapes of her birthplace, Scotland, and of Canada, her new home.
Each landscape is wet-felted using wool and silk. Jennifer then embellishes each work with needlefelting, freemotion machine embroidery and hand stitching.
Engaging with such a tactile medium allows Jennifer to connect deeply with her work, forging a connection between the maker and the viewer.
Jennifer has enjoyed sharing her skills as a fibre workshop leader in the Shetland Islands, the Outer Hebrides and the Highlands of Scotland and in Ontario.
