Hello, thank you for visiting Purr & Wag It,
purveyor of fine felted pet portraits hand made by Heather Fiona Martin.
Choose felt for your original work of art because ...
felt, through its tactile qualities instantaneously triggers and connects to the act or memory of stroking your beloved pet. If photographs capture a moment in time and paintings depict more of a story, felt provides a tangible memory.
For me it’s this sensory response that makes felt absolutely perfect for pet portraits.
Perhaps more so where, similar to the Victorians who kept lockets of hair to secure the memory of a loved one, groomings from your pet are incorporated into the felt. Though this isn't compulsory!
