Artist CV

Jennifer Budd 


Artist Statement: Inspired by light and the land, I utilize the ancient craft of felt making to create felted paintings. I paint with wool and embellish my woolscapes with slow stitching. The tactile nature of working with wool and thread is a constant source of satisfaction for me.
