Felicity Wood

That’s me... My real job is teaching, however  am always telling the children I teach that when I grow up I want to be an artist.

So I am finally (after much nagging) going to do something about it, just in case I do grow up eventually.

I live on the Isle of Man and I love the sea. To be specific I love kayaking on the sea, paddling in the sea and throwing stones in the sea. The sea hasn’t inspired all my work, but certainly much of my textile and greetings card work has a feel of the sea about it.

The Isle of Man also has a strong Celtic and Viking heritage which has also inspired a great deal of my work, including my clay work.
