An exhibition of colourful and textured pictures inspired by the local landscape made using hand-dyed natural fibres.
Ushma creates landscape and wildlife pictures using fibre. She takes inspiration from the unique and historical Ridgeway scenery around her, working to capture light, depth and texture with fibre. Fibres used include wool, silk, camel, alpaca, llama, angora, flax, seaweed, bamboo and acrylic. The pictures are made using needle felting methods and range from mini 10cm pieces to large scale landscapes up to a metre wide.
Ushma started using fibre as a medium in 2015 and has developed her self-taught knowledge and skills with practice. Each piece requires individual techniques to achieve the desired effect, so there is always something new to learn.
