Kerry Bullock

Raised in the West Kootenays, Kerry comes from a close family of artists. Creating on instinct and being inspired by the natural world, Kerry fell in love with felt. Felt is a unique, non-woven textile made from wool fibres. The art of felt making predates woven cloth and is thought to date back to Neolithic time. Felt making is an ancient and alchemical process during which wool fibres shrink and come together to form a dense mat when objected to heat, humidity, friction and a change of alkalinity. Kerry obtained her diploma in fine arts and mix media from The Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson BC. Taking her knowledge on the road, traveling around and learning new techniques made her the textile artist she is today.
