Jim sang at 'The Three Monkeys ' at the Art House last night.....here is one of his songs ...'St. Michael's Square'.......this is a beautiful love song where he tells of when we first met 8 yrs ago and he took me down to the old historic part of Southampton to show me how beautiful Southampton used to look before the terrible bombing it endured during the second World War.......Southampton is a port where the Spitfire Aeroplane was designed and built and so was a major target for bombing .....The main shopping part of the city was hastily rebuilt in the 50's and has no character so it was interesting to see the historic part and to have a love song written about me was really special !!.......
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
Here is the facebook page ..with lots of pics .....
