Staffordshire textile artist JO HILL will be staging her next solo exhibition this summer in CANNOCK.
The exhibition celebrates the diversity of wildlife on Cannock Chase and is on from Saturday 24th June for 7 weeks at the Museum of Cannock Chase.
As artist and designer Jo specialises in making luxury textile wall hangings, cushions, lampshades and chairs inspired by British wildlife.
She uses the Staffordshire countryside as a source of inspiration for her designs, from the huge variety of birds that visit her garden, to the fallow deer on Cannock Chase.
She expertly interprets their colours and textures in a range of glorious fabrics coupled with fine, detailed stitching in her own unique style.
