Joanna – AKA Dotty Scotty – is an artist that currently specialises in 3D needle felted wool sculpture. She predominantly creates beautiful birds of all shapes and sizes drawing her inspiration from the wildlife that surrounds her.
Having formally trained in Fine Art & Textile Printmaking she is able to use her design skills to bring her creations to life, each one taking on their own individual character.
The wool is felted by jabbing barbed needles into it. Firstly a solid form is made which is then worked into: layering the colours, blending them and then creating the stunning patterns that are unique to each bird, all crafted with a single or multi needle.
Joanna has lived in Norfolk for 11 years and works from her studio in Brundall. She sells her work online ( Dotty Scotty needle felt ) undertakes commissioned work and has recently started to show her work locally.
