There are artists we like and we follow them on Twitter. Pete Fowler and Jon Burgerman are on the top list. And thanks to them, we discovered the highly talented Felt Mistess. She creates… creatures. Of all kind, really. And we love what she does!
But who is Felt Mistress?
Felt Mistress AKA Louise Evans is a UK based stitcher and prolific tea drinker who creates a range of one-off bespoke creatures with her partner, illustrator Jonathan Edwards. Originally trained in fashion design and millinery, Louise has brought many of the skills learnt through years of work as a couture dress maker to the world of character design. As well as original Felt Mistress characters Louise has also collaborated with a variety of other artists including Jon Burgerman, Jon Knox (Hello, Brute)and Pete Fowler. Her work has been exhibited in the UK and internationally and in 2010 was given her own window on Oxford Street as part of Selfridges’ Christmas display.
Now you know more about who is Felt Mistress, you really have to check her website and visit every section: FM Originals, FM Beetles, FM Selfridges Display, FM X Jon Burgerman, FM Collaborations. You can watch videos and buy a Beetle at her online shop. Don’t miss her blog.
