Artist Statement

Jan Hoyle is a felt artist who draws her inspiration from the local landscape of the Peak District. She uses fibre as an expressive art form to create images of these landscapes. She is particularly interested in the blending and layering of coloured fibres to suggest light and texture in her work. The process she uses is wet felting, with needle felting and stitch to enhance aspects of the pieces.

Merino wool is the primary material but she also adds other fibres and fabric to create different effects in her work. Jan also makes felt vessels using the same wet felting process.
