View and buy original felted landscapes by textile artist Valerie Wartelle

Valerie Wartelle

Valérie is a contemporary fibre artist whose main fascination lies within the manipulation of fibres and textiles as an expressive art form. Taking the rural environment as her inspiration, she explores long-term interests of texture, colour, layering and process to create contemplative and ethereal wall hung artworks.

Valérie’s primary practice is wet felting; a traditional craft technique using wool tops, hot water, soapsuds and friction to interlock the fibres together. The compositions are built in layers in which cloth is embedded, prints disguised, and threads unravelled as a painter with her brush.

Brought up in France and French Polynesia, Valérie originally came to the UK to study textile design. After a period working in the textile industry and in local government, she is now a practicing artist working and living in West Yorkshire.

In 2015, she was awarded the Embroidery Magazine’s Best Emerging Textile Artist at SIT Select Showcase, as well as Best Picture in Show at the Great North Art Show in Ripon.
