Featured Artist - Debra Esterhuizen
Self-taught felt artist Debra lives in the beautiful Eden Valley, Cumbria and says that living in the splendours of the Lake District constantly inspires her and her work.
I love the feel of wool as it rekindles fond memories of my childhood and grandparents! I now have a studio where I run successful workshops teaching others the joys of felt. I have also had amazing fun collaborating with schools to create huge panels of art. For me wool is integral to well-being!
Debra's artwork radiates energy using rich vibrant colours, and exudes the excitement witnessed in her travels through Europe and Asia.
