picture of my Grandad and brothers.........my Grandad Herbert is the one facing the camera with the dark suit on ....... This was a photo believed to have been taken in the 1890's of Snows Builder's yard in Neath .......my Grandad worked at the family business all his life still going into work well into his late 80's he died in his 90's Edgar Snow one of my Grandad's brothers
Margaret my Great Grandmother.........
William Henry my Great Grandfather......... Ethel Snow one of my Grandad's sisters Some things don't change over the generations Ethel Flossie and Harold..Auntie Flossie was a dancer and had a dancing group ..... as a child I danced in Auntie Flossie's Troupe as it was called my friend Louise and I got the front spots for a lot of the numbers we performed shows all over the place and had a grand old time.......... I believe that it was Harold Snow who bred champion Welsh terriers he took them to Crufts and exported them to America....... Auntie Flossie was quite a character as you can see from these pics....... Re-found the website with some of my family history so i've posted some interesting photos of my Grandad, some of his brothers and sisters and his parents and grandparents.......The Snow family had a building business in Neath South Wales where I was born and grew up ....there were 22 children 13 of which survived into adulthood....the link if you're interested is Snow Family
I am a qualified Textile Teacher but now I am lucky enough to follow my dream being a full time Textile Artist and I love every minute I spend creating in my studio at The West Wing. I am passionate about textiles and am privileged to share my skills with others.
I run workshops for schools, colleges and groups.
I work 1 to 1 with individuals who might want help with basic sewing or more advanced techniques.
Commissions are always welcome please get in touch with me to discuss your requirements. No textile job is too small .....:)
I sell my work through Etsy and you can find me on Facebook at Artymess Textile Art ...come and say hello.
Thanks for taking the time to have a glimpse at my world.
Come and visit my other blog ArtyMaker..I have been lucky enough, along with 8 other Textile artists to take part in The Enliven Project....a project organised by Eastleigh Borough Council....which means that we are working as artists in residence in local Charity shops ...we will create an outfit out of goodies we find in our allocated shop which will be put on display for a month. The outfit will then be featured in the Eastleigh music Festival weekend in July
