The Jetty Gallery
Hazel’s creative background started in photography, crafting was always a hobby on the side. It was after moving to Argyll from Perth she started to combine her love of birds and wildlife with her love of textiles. Her new surroundings inspired her to create life size studies of various species.
Hazel’s creations are completely unique, in that no two pieces, even of the same species, are the same. It is important to her that her studies are as true to life as possible. The process for each piece is labour intensive. She makes use of many different fabrics including vintage lace, velvet, tartans and tweeds. Hazel now gets more excited about a garments potential to become a bird or animal than how it looks on!
