We are pleased to welcome for the first time to the showground Joan Prowse B.A. A professional artist designer maker, who works in many different media, of which wool is one.
Joan will be showing her amazing creations and offering expert advice at the show. She specialises in needle felting and has been working with wool for 5 years. As an extremely gifted artist, her work (which is heavily influenced by her Christian faith) is some of finest you will see in the UK.
Joan started by gaining a degree in three-dimensional design, specialising as a furniture designer/maker. Throughout her life she has worked primarily in illustration, and continues to produce pieces for private collections in and around Britain and Europe.
Having worked as an artist in France for three years, she returned to Devon in the UK, where she now undertakes private commission work and gives needle felting tuition both as an optional extra to the Bicton Fibrecraft course, and independently.
She is a member of the Devon Artist Network, the IFA and fAB, and exhibits at various events, giving talks and demonstrations to groups as well as individual tuition (if required). Joan is also a retailer of needle felting equipment and supplies. “I am inspired by the beauty in the creation I see around me, and by the power of the Holy Spirit who works through me. My aim is to bless and encourage others on their own journey, and to inspire them, through my work, to have a deeper relationship with the ultimate Creator.”
