Penny Irvine - Fibre Artist

I am a professional artist specializing in laid fibre painting and wet/needle felt painting. I live in Thurso on Scotland's rugged North Coast. I use the traditional techniques of wet felting, needle felting and raised and freehand embroidery to create paintings with a more contemporary feel. I also create laid fibre paintings which is a more unique and unusual way of creating art with softer and more dreamlike results.

I am a member of the International Feltmakers Association. 

Touch, Kaleidoscope and Awakening are featuring in the Journys Exhibition at The Art Gallery in Thurso Library 2nd - 30th March
