Lisa Marie Olson, Entrepreneur and Creative Director designs in all things Lily the Lamb, Alice by Lily, Felt Fairyland, Felt Storyland and Felt Wonderland from the heart of her home studio in Staffordshire!
Lisa Marie is a visual storyteller who uses soft textiles such as felt, fabric and threads to create interesting and fun narratives.
As Seen on TV, "Award Winning" , Voted Best of British and published author of the title Felt Wonderland are just a few of the highlights of Lisa Marie’s creative life. Her love affair with creative arts started at school with needle work and textile arts. Lisa Marie quickly realised that she had a natural flair and ability to create wonderful things with threads, fabric, ribbons, buttons and left over bits and bobs. After a short time Lisa Marie began making things for family and friends adding finishing touches to a room, such as a roman blind, customizing bags and making unique accessories.
The interest in creative pastimes continued into adulthood, where Lisa was able to save money by making and customizing not only her wardrobe but home too.
Over the past 35+ years Lisa Marie has continued to develop skills in all areas of creativity, from creating decorative items for the home, up-cycling, paper crafting and felt-making.
Many of Lisa Marie’s designs are created and inspired by an enormous love of classic fairy tales and stories such as Alice in Wonderland, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit, The Grimm Brothers and Dickens. It is the characters and adventures within the pages that jumped out and sparked Lisa Marie’s interest from a very early age. It is those very characters that have inspired her unique Lily the Lamb, Alice by Lily, Felt Wonderland and Felt fairyland ranges and the adventures that follow them.
More recently Lisa Marie has developed a range of online tutorials, with a wide range of easy to follow tutorials from quick and easy machine projects to intricate hand stitched heirlooms.
