Needle Felt Artist, Crafter and Teacher


I have been felting for over 5 years now and am still full of ideas for the possibilities this magical medium offers.

The inspiration for my needle felting comes from the countryside surrounding my Dorset home, the nearby New Forest, and my pet dog Ragnar! I share images of my felt creations and nature photographs on Instagram (see below) and you can find me across social media (click on the links at the top and bottom of the page).


You can find my work on Etsy, in Handmade New Forest in Lymington and New Milton, Forever Green in Moordown, Bournemouth, or commission me directly.

The name Apulina comes from my great-grandmother.

Thanks for visiting,


I trained as an art director in film and animation at the Arts University Bournemouth.  My love of nature then led me to study environmental studies with The Open University.

I am a qualified primary teacher and teacher of English as a foreign language.  I have worked with children, teenagers and adults of all ages, including those with special educational needs and who speak English as an additional language.
