Dia duit! Greetings from Donegal
I am Michelle of the McKee clan,
Artist and felt maker with a love for moody colours, textiles, nature and sheep.
My creations are hand felted landscape pictures,
inspired by my rural habitat, on the North West Coast of Éire….
contrary to the North East, where I was born and bred in Belfast during the ‘height of it’.
I make my mark by using fleece (un spun wool) – a natural medium –
unpredictable, wild and unruly, like myself!
When fleece is rubbed with soapy water, the scales in the fibres open and when they close,
they lock together to create Hand Made Felt.
