ALL ABOUT
PEERIE OORICK

I stay on the island of Whalsay in Shetland with my husband Michael and our 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 worked alongside the talented illustrators Jenny Duncan and Jo Anderson who brought 'Da Ooricks' and 'Da Fisherman's wife' to life with their vibrant illustrations.
