Thirteen year old Kathleen Flask creates felt key chains, designing and creating these in collaboration with her mother in limited series of each design. Each piece is sure to bring a smile to your face! On The Trail you can find Kathleen at The Cavalieri Art Hotel where she will be explaining her creative process and making new pieces. An Etsy entrepreneur, Kathleen also creates custom designs of people’s pets on commission.
“Kathleen Flask is a talented youngster who designs and hand-makes original felt key-chains which appeal to both children and adults alike. She has always loved to draw and design animals, and with imagination and flair these pictures are transformed into quirky and colourful pocket-sized characters using occasional buttons and stylised stitching, which adds a gothic flavour, reminiscent perhaps, of Tim Burton’s family animation – Nightmare before Christmas.” say art writer Esther Lafferty.
