Helly Powell is a Textile Artist currently based in the Brecon Beacons National Park. She has combined her deep love for the Landscape and it’s flora and fauna with a lifelong obsession in textiles. She expresses this in her Textile Taxidermy Sculptures, which she's 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 every day lives. I currently 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.'
