‘Studying at MMU was an amazing experience. The staff were very supportive of you developing an individual approach to your practice, and presentation and professionalism were highly regarded. I learned many practical skills that have enabled me to take a diverse approach to my career in embroidered textiles.
‘I made many valuable contacts at MMU via students and staff and this has helped enormously in the years that followed my graduation.’
Priscilla has been producing contemporary, stitched, mixed media pieces in 2D and 3D since completing her Embroidery degree at MMU in 1997. Her work focuses on the use of found materials creating pieces that evoke personal memories of her childhood and a love of sewing.
Constantly inspired by her environment, Priscilla lives on the northwest coast of England and, working from her studio and gallery, she reflects the faded beauty of her surroundings.
Her work describes an absorbing observation of the soft tones and textures of nostalgic imagery from a bygone era.
Her work is sold and exhibited across the UK and Europe, with many pieces held in public and private collections. She also lectures part-time and runs workshops for schools, colleges and independent galleries.
In 2003 Priscilla and her husband opened the Edge Gallery in Lancaster specialising in contemporary fine and applied art.
Priscilla’s work can be found at the following galleries: The Edge Gallery, Lancaster · Stark Gallery Canterbury & London · Platform Gallery, Clitheroe · Baxters, Devon · Janet Bell Gallery, Beaumaris Wales · Coppermoon, Belfast, Ireland · anchester Craft & Design Centre · Un Bonheur des Dames, Bruges.
