Unique, bespoke pet portraits, wild animal portraits and 3d sculptures, handmade from wool


Meet Shirley 

Needle Felt Artist

Hi, I'm Shirley Strickland and I'm a Needle Felter. When I'm not walking my dog Pheebs, I spend a lot of my time sculpting and painting with wool.

I'm tickled pink that you have taken the time to drop by.  If you just want to see what I do you can view some examples of my work here. If you are interested in a portrait of your pet or one of my other animal portraits and sculptures, please contact me or come and find me at one of the craft or artists fairs I attend.

Oh, and there may be some interesting little snippets on my blog page.
