Artist's Welcome

My name is Corina Hogan nee Lewis and I am an artist currently living in the beautiful West of Ireland Galway.  

I am married to a very patient guy called Eamonn, who has ALWAYS encouraged my mad artistic streak. So much so that he made my lifetime dream come true of having a big wooden cabin as an art room in our back garden.

Lots of thanks to Kevin McHugh also who helped make this happen !! THANKS KEV ! You're a diamond !! 

We have three lovely children, two sons and one daughter and are all very creative in different ways. My daughter now works alongside me when I do classes and I would be lost without her. Thanks Sasha !! You're brilliant x

My lovely friend Patricia is a great inspiration to me both artistically and mentally. !!THANKS Patricia for everything that you are and for keeping me sane !! Spotting all the beautiful early morning sunrises with the dew on the millions of cobwebs through the bog just wouldn't be the same if we didn't share the beauty.


I provide group lessons, classes, demonstrations and workshops in the following mediums:
  • Oil Painting
  • Acrylic Painting
  • Watercolour painting
  • Needle Felting
  • Papier Mache 


Aran Island Walk To Mass Needle Felting
Needle Felting is a craft where wool is felted by using a special needle felting needle. These needles come in various sizes (gauges) and typically have inverted barbs so that the wool is felted as the needle is poked in, and the needle can then be easily withdrawn because the barbs do not snag the wool on the way out.

The crafter can use a single needle felting needle in a single holder for fine, detailed work. The crafter can also use multiple needle felt needles in a special multi-needle felt holder tool (up to 10 needles at a time) for faster and less detailed felting.


I can turn any photograph / picture or idea into a painting or needle felt creation. This could include any landscape, seascape or a place like a family home or other favourite places that brings very special memories to mind. 

Also this could include any family pets that you would like as a 3D sculpture or needle felt creation for pets that have left us or are still our best friends. These personal paintings and creations make wonderful gifts to retain precious memories for family and friends.


I have produced many unique and one off pieces using the following mediums:
  • Watercolour paintings
  • Acrylic paintimgs
  • Oil paintings
  • Needle felt paintings
  • Needle felt sculptures
  • Wet felting paintings
  • Woolnutz
  • 3D papier mache paintings


Felting Wool

Knowing how difficult it can be to source the bits and bobs that you need to start off needle and wet felting I have put together a small online shop that provided you with everything that you will need to get started. 

These consist of the smallest needle to kits with everything you require in one package.


I have written two small teaching guides in both Needle Felting and Wet Felting. 

These guides are a very simple and easy introductions to Felting and will give you all the information that you need to start off these wonderful crafts.


Crazy nutzy needle felt characters.

These needle felt characters are made with Natural sheeps wool.

Place these needle felt characters anywhere in your home or car or office and you will smile every time you see it.

Each character is unique, no two are 100% identical, but each will be close to the original item pictured.
