Tanya Rogers Mixed Media Felt Artist

“I have always lived in and around St Ives and feel blessed to be surrounded by endless inspiration for my work; the stunning beaches and coastline, the hedgerows and woodland, the bleak moorland, granite tors and standing stones as well as the countryside and gardens on the doorstep of our family farm.

My main love is fibre art, using wet felting and needle felting techniques to create artwork and accessories.  

I am mostly self-taught after catching the felting bug many years ago when I took my children to a felting workshop at St Ives Library – there was just something a bit ‘magic’ about what happened during the felting process and I’ve enjoyed exploring the medium ever since.

It’s lovely to have my work in Blue Bramble Gallery, amongst such a wonderful array of makers and artists and of course, the gallery is in my hometown which is a very special bonus.

Creating is something I do primarily for the joy of it and for its benefits to my well-being and I hope that my artwork passes a little bit of joy to someone else too.”
