Assemblage - The Red Shoes

MJ:  What is it that you do/make? 
SG:  I currently make assemblage/art dresses, drawing inspiration from classic novels and tales such as those of Jane Austen, Emily Brontte and Hans Christian Anderon.  I also teach with a small local arts group who meet once a week and, run project based art workshops open to all.

Assemblage - The Nymph
MJ:  How did you get started/What is the motivation behind your work?  
SG: I studied Figurative Illustration at Epsom College of Art & Design, where one of my tutors was Sharon Peacock.
 
After Epsom I returned to my native Isle of Anglesey but wasn’t able to find a job where I could pursue my art.  I had various jobs but in the end I had to give them up and strike out on my own.  At first I volunteered as artist in residence at my childrens school then went on to establish a childrens art club in the local arts centre.  Following this I ran art classes for the local Further Education College before finally setting up my own adult art classes. 
 
In the last few years I’ve cut back on the art classes to concentrate on my own art, setting up Messie Jessie to sell and market my work.
Another Stolen Moment
 
 MJ:  Where can we find your work? 
SG:  I show/sell my work on Etsy, Facebook and my own online shop.  I also have blog where I like to share my work and inspiration with others.
