portrait of Joanne Pilkington

The creative energy I experienced at Manchester Metropolitan University was extremely motivating; mixing with highly creative people from many different courses encouraged me to try a wide range of ideas. My BA (Hons) in Fine Art enabled me to develop time management skills and also gave me the studio space to progress my work.


Working from my Manchester-based studio, I sell nationally and internationally, delivering my artwork directly to customers in my local area and couriering pieces worldwide.

I enjoy working with all materials and I don’t like to be restricted by what I’ve previously used. I’m always learning new techniques, finding new ways to manipulate surfaces and searching for new materials to work with.

My artwork has been:

  • shown at the Islington Art & Design Fair – my degree show installation was spotted by curators and transported for display in that year’s collection
  • featured on ITV
  • used by the interior designer John Amabile
  • published in House & Home Ideas Magazine
  • exhibited in a solo exhibition at the Turnpike Gallery, Greater Manchester
