About Seven Hands

Seven Hands

Art makes me and I try and keep out of the way!

Im mixed media artist living and working in the beautiful county of West Yorkshire. My studio over looks the world heritage site of Salts Mill which has inspired me many times. We are quite high up and are surrounded by trees with the river Aire and Manchester ship canal to our left. I moved to Yorkshire in the 1980’s and fell in love!
My Art reflects my environment and interests, with certain shapes cropping up again and again like the spiral, but colour, form, texture and pattern are key elements. This mind acts like a pictorial sponge that churns all input around until it comes out as something I never imagined! Making never ceases to interest me in how it evolves. The idea may be one way but the art is organic and moves to become something totally unseen.
I started very young telling my Mum in the kitchen that I was going to be an artist! I began selling very young too. Blue Peter was responsible for my card making and by secondary school I sold all sorts, so I guess it was inevitable!
Lately I’ve been fascinated by textiles and have been exploring what I can do with them. My Yorkshire landscapes try and capture the beauty of my county in all its inspirational aspects. I use upcycled fabric scraps that would otherwise go to landfill, and I have some amazing friends who save me bags of goodies!
