A VARIED selection of work by a local textile artist is currently on display at the Trestle Arts Base in St Albans.
Jessica Alys Marcy Crafts, who works under the name Jamcrafts, was originally from Lancashire but moved to Hertfordshire eight years ago.
She has enjoyed arts and crafts since childhood and discovered a love of textiles at college which was followed by gaining a degree in textile crafts at Huddersfield University.
Jess spends all her spare time making, stitching and painting. She specialises in hand embroidery which gives her the freedom to “draw” with the threads without the restrictions of using a machine.
She describes her work as quirky and cute and aimed at making people smile. She produces a varied range of crafts from small detailed embroidered brooches to large painted canvases and loves mixing media ranging from acrylic paint and fabric to beads and embroidery threads.
