My passions are my three children and my art. I make/ create in every spare moment of every day. I have also worked as a freelance model maker for animation companies here in Bristol. I graduated in painting from Glasgow school of Art with a first class degree and have spent the last few years working as an artist and designer maker. I have just completed my PGCE year to teach art and design at secondary level.

I have  a Big Cartel shop  where you can buy my paintings and an Etsy shop, I can be found here pinterest  here facebook  and here Instagram

  6. Hi Jess, I am doing this project at school in Textiles. This is my first year learning how to use the sewing machine and i love it. We got to choose an artist and i choose you because i just love your work. I was wondering if you could answer a couple of questions we needed to find out. I was wondering Where do you get your amazing ideas from?, What kinds of materials do you use? and Where/how do they sell? thank you so much and it would be great if you could reply.

  7. Hi Jess, my name is Sarah. I came across your name as my friend has some of your printed plates hanging in their home. Until I looked up your work of those quirky little dolls, I was totally blown away by your excited creations. I graduated in textile design 2 years ago and havent done anything since then.. I would like to pick up my interest again. You are so inspiring me and it would be honoured to have a chance to assist you in any way. For summer coming along, if there are events that you need an extra pair of hand of , please let me know. Best regards, Sarah

  8. Hi Sarah, thank you for your lovely message and apologies for the late reply, I have been away from blogging and creating for the past year. I’m not sure what the future holds at the moment, nothing happening this summer but will keep you in mind for the future. Very best wishes, Jess
