ThisÂ is a suggested felt artist’s site and I am so happy that Joely directed me to Melanieâ€™s felted art. Once you visit her gallery I am sure you will agree that her work is exceptional. Her use of color and form is exceptional. Please do visit her gallery and see for yourself. Her Gallery is Enchanted Earth.Â If anyone knows where we can purchase Melanie’s art, please let us know.Â Â Here is another site that tells a little aboutÂ this artist Textile Arts.
Melanie Ashton-Hosseini graduated from what is now Manchester Metropolitan University in 1992, with a B.A. Hons in Fine Art (painting). Since then she has worked as a fashion stylist, painted mandalas and qualified as an Ayurvedic therapist. She discovered the beauty of felt making from a workshop in Edinburgh in 2004 and has been felting ever since. She sells her work in a variety of places from craft fairs to galleries and shops.
