Welcome to The Ugly House- where I craft beautiful  fibre art.

I am a Textile Artist.  I love the tactile textural effect of using textiles and fibre and textiles in my art. I needlefelt and wetfelt fibres, including wool, silks and bamboo.  I also ‘draw’ with my sewing machine.

Everything is hand crafted with lots of love and the occasional swear word. (Need felting needles are sharp and barbed!)

 I do commissions. Please ask 🙂

The background- The Ugly House got its name when we purchased a very ugly house and renovated it. When it was finished I crafted things to make my Ugly House into a home and I haven’t stopped since! Everything I make, I have a version of it in my home. I start by making something I love, then I make more to share. My first felt portrait was my of my daughter. One of my dogs feature in my pet portrait gallery (and when I get time I will do the others!)
