About Me

Welcome to my world of textile art! Mary Liston is my name, I am from the historic village of Adare in Ireland where I create unique pieces of art using wool and silk fibers, in a technique called needle felting. Wistful and atmospheric images of Ireland are captured when I manipulate the fibers with a barbed needle onto a wool backing. The natural rugged beauty of the Irish landscape and coastline is a constant source of inspiration and each piece is an original. All my work is available to ship overseas so if you see something you like and have any questions, please email me on textileartbymary@gmail.com and I will be happy to help. I hope you enjoy your visit to my site, thank you for looking.

Work in progress inside my studio! Combinations and assortments of yarns, tweeds, silk and wools.
