valerie wartelle

medium - textiles


valérie wartelle is a contemporary fibre artist based in west yorkshire. she works with a combination of fibres, threads, textiles and print elements to create artfelt pieces inspired by land, sea and sky scapes.

brought up in france and french polynesia, valérie came to the uk to study textile design. after working in the fashion industry and local government, valérie recently returned to her first love of constructed textiles, where she discovered an intuitive affinity with the practice of wet felting, enticed by its challenging attributes. her felt pieces evolve through a number of processes to create distinctive artworks with a contemporary and refined feel. valérie seeks to create ephemeral moments and moods that yet will feel familiar – an invitation to amble into our own serenity.

her artfelts are regularly shown in galleries and art fairs throughout the UK.
