Packed with colour and style, this gorgeous and inspiring new book from Scottish artist Moy Mackay delves deep into the world of felt painting. The book includes an introduction to Moys use of colour and texture, as well as a useful section detailing what inspires her and how she forms these initial ideas into a composition.
There are 4 easy-to-follow but inspiring step-by-step projects, along with extensive galleries of Moys vibrant work. Unlike the broad range of her previous book, the focus here is flowers in still life, in the landscape and as botanical portraits and the book includes an in-depth techniques section on creating a range of different flower and leaf shapes, so that the reader can go on to produce their own unique masterpieces.
"Moy's passionate use of colour and the deep texture created by felting are what draw me to her work. I also like the way that she concentrates on her surroundings for her subject matter her work is very free."- Kaffe Fassett
Author Bio - Since graduating from the Glasgow School of Art in 1990 with a BA (Hons) degree in Design specialising in printed textiles, Moy Mackay has gone on to develop an innovative felting style using merino fleece fibres in the same way that a painter uses brushstrokes, then embellishing them with machine and hand embroidery. She has exhibited her work at numerous exhibitions throughout the UK and also in the US, and she has built up a steadily increasing fan base. Moy works from Wasps Artistâ€™s Studios in Selkirk as well as running The Moy Mackay Gallery in Peebles. Since her first book Art in Felt & Stitch was published in April 2012, Moyâ€™s work has gained worldwide exposure and she now teaches classes both at home and abroad. In 2013 she won Silver in the category of Textiles and Needlecraft, judged by Kaffe Fassett at the British Craft & Design Selected Awards. http://www.moymackaygallery.com/
