ABOUT SHARON WELLS
Sharon is a fibre and textile artist working with wool and silk fibres to produce unique and individual felted pictures. She uses a combination of processes such as wet felting, needlefelting, beading, hand and machine embroidery and a variety of materials such as wool, alpaca, bamboo and silk fibres, hand dyed threads and wire. These pictures are often referred to as wool paintings. Sharon uses texture and colour to portray her strong emotional connection to the landscapes, seascapes and wildflowers of County Kerry where she grew up and County Wicklow, where she now lives. She uses fibres and threads given to her by friends and family to add meaning and personal connection.
