Breda McNelis

Inspired by the subtle colours and textures of the Irish landscape, the ebb and flow of the tide, wildflowers and boglands, I create contemporary framed wall art using traditional fabrics and yarns. I love working with natural fabrics which include Báinín, Donegal tweed and Irish linen. These heritage fabrics become my canvas onto which I needle felt and embellish, building up layers with fine merino wool, silk fibres and select yarns to create unique artwork that reflects my inspiration.

My work has been exhibited with the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland in Dublin, London and Harrogate. My work has also been selected for inclusion in the RDS Craft Awards Exhibition. I am registered with the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland, am a member of Feltmakers Ireland and The Irish Guild of Embroiderers. I am happy to work on public and private commissions. My artwork is available from select retail stores or directly from me. Please visit my website for further information.
