Patternbank recently discovered the eye-catching and vibrant embellishments of Leeds based textile artist Jessica Grady. We wanted to find out more so we asked her about herself and what influences her designs and techniques.
I am a contemporary embroidery artist who works from my home studio just outside of Leeds, West Yorkshire. My colourful and highly tactile work has been exhibited in various galleries and publications across the UK and Europe and I am also a member of the Crafts Council’s Makers directory. Recently I have been awarded the 2018 Embroiderers Guild Scholar award.
