Inspired by her latest trip to the Outer Hebrides in Scotland (home), the artist has created a series of wonderful new wool paintings. The waterside cliff, part of the Isle of Lewis, is mesmerizing with the multiple threads and wool designed to mimic the gorgeous cliff face.
Size 5" x 5", framed with white mat and light natural wood frame to 9 3/4" x 9 3/4".
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 feltmaking. “Painting with wool”, Jennifer creates vibrant landscapes of her birthplace, Scotland, and of Canada, her new home.
Each landscape is wetfelted 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.
