Helly Powell is a Welsh textile artist Born and Raised in Abergavenny She now works from an old Dairy Farm in The Black Mountains. A member of “The Makers Guild of Wales”, she has combined her love for the landscape and it’s wildlife with a lifelong interest in textiles to develop her art Fauxidermy, (a play on words faux, French for false and taxidermy).
Best known for her “Parc Lodge” collection she creates sculptural pieces which have caught the imagination of many.
I am enjoying volunteering with AberArtsFest and feel passionate about the Arts being accessible to everyone. The work we are doing for Abergavenny Arts Festival will hopefully give a platform to Local Kids & Teens that don’t have the opportunity to participate in the Arts.
