Helly Powell is a Textile Artist currently based in the Brecon Beacons National Park; She has combined her deep love of the Landscape and its flora and fauna with a lifelong obsession in textiles which she expresses in her textile taxidermy aptly named Fauxidermy.
‘’As humans we have a deep bond with nature, a bond that Heals and enriches the Soul. Through my work I hope to inspire this beautiful connection between humanity and Wildlife. My pieces are not only for visual enjoyment but i hope they will inspire people to appreciate the wonder of the natural world around us and to cherish it for future generations.
I like to think I’m rewilding homes by putting a representation of Wildlife and the landscape into our everyday life.
I currency have 3 collections all of which have been inspired by our National parks and the nature and wildlife within it, in particular; the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia and the Pembrokeshire Coast.
