Yarnbombing is a new counterpoint in street art. My yarnbombs transform objects with an aim to delight and inspire.
I collaborate on most works with my sister, Jill Watt.
I make, install, maintain, and remove the vast majority of our work and almost always get permission to install. I have never “gotten in trouble” or been asked to remove a new yarnbomb. My yarnbombs do not damage flora and fauna. Yarnbombing is not a waste of time.
To commission new work, contact me.
