Myra Hutton says, “My roots in textiles go way back: my interest was captured when I was still at primary school, and since my training in Textile Art and Dress & Textile Design I have spent many years both teaching and developing my own textile practice.”
Inspired by her natural surroundings and experiences Myra has developed a unique way through a mixture of blending and shading wool fibres, treating them as a felt painting, and shaping this canvas with stitch. Her ambition is always to capture the essence of the countrysid,e creating richly embellished landscapes, sunsets or seascapes. Myra likes to think of her felted landscapes as a traditional craft with a contemporary twist, presented as works of textile art.
Myra has also developed her dye and stitch work in an illustrative way, exploring the linear qualities of architecture and objects, producing contemporary scenes and images which are now published as contemporary art led greetings cards.
