"Felting the Land" is a collection of images of my artwork. "Felting" refers to the technique I use to create the landscapes. Each one is uniquely made by layering wools, silks and organic materials in a design and then hand felting them together using a wet felting method. This book contains a selection landscapes created between 2008 and 2010.

About the Author

Sheila Thompson
srttfj Toronto, Ontario, Canada

One thing I know for sure - change is inevitable. As it comes, embrace it and grow. I trained for one career and experienced another and in the process learned how to make art too. You can never have too many skill sets.

As a geographer and ecologist, I was trained to interpret landscapes as layers of pattern, process, landforms and habitat. As an artist, I layer wool, silk and natural found objects to re-imagine and convey the complex texture and colour of the surface of the land. I hope to provide a fresh perspective on landscapes by recasting them as felt.
