I create art
Specialising in large scale hand-made wet felt landscapes created in merino wool and other textile materials. Myra also creates small editions of other artwork including small pictures, soft sculptures and personal pieces such as jewellery.
I create greeting cards
Myra's textile artwork forms the core of the greeting card collection published by UK based Barley Bay. Available from retailers in the UK as well as Barley Bay's own online store.
I create commissions
Myra loves making bespoke commissions for individual clients who are looking for a very personal piece of artwork. A typical commission may be a landscape featuring scenes, colours and content that have a special resonance with the individual; Myra will work closely with them to develop the desires and ideas and then the finished item.
