Jessica Grady

Jessica is a contemporary embroidery artist who creates intricate embellished pieces with a 3-D and highly sculptural feel. Her colourful and contemporary work has been exhibited in various galleries across the UK and Europe. In 2018 she was awarded the Under 30 Embroiderers Guild Scholar award for her textiles practice. Alongside creating and exhibiting her work Jessica teaches her own workshop programme to groups, schools and private clients across the UK. Jessica’s inspiration for her work is derived from macro views of surface textures combined with exploring and pushing the boundaries of her materials.

TEXTILE PRACTICE
Jessica’s designs are a textural and visual feast, combining bold colour and clusters of embellished treasure that is created from a combination of waste and recycled materials. Jessica uses various processes including printing, foiling, dyeing and melting to transform what others perceive to be rubbish into tactile and creative embellishments. All of her designs are hand stitched; Jessica uses traditional stitches in contemporary patterns, flecking fabrics with bold neon lines and metallic loops. Colour is an important aspect of her work – her designs are fearless in their use of strong colours, creating a very vivid and saturated colour palette
