All About
Peerie Oorick

I stay on the island of Whalsay in Shetland with my husband Michael with our two lasses Faye & Mollie.

 

I started needle felting in 2011, my ooie creations are made from Shetland wool and Fair Isle remnants from Jamieson’s of Shetland in Sandness.  

In 2015 I began writing and became a self-publisher of 'Peerie Oorick books' writing and publishing Shetland dialect stories inspired by my needle felted characters.  I have worked alongside the talented illustrators Jenny Duncan, Jo Anderson and Dirk Robertson who brought 'Da Ooricks' 'Da Fisherman's wife' and 'Myrtle an Meenie' to life with their vibrant illustrations.  


Thanks Ann Marie x
