Nook of the North

'Hello, I'm Becca, embroidery artist and jeweller, otherwise known as Nook of the North. I work from my studio at home here in Yorkshire. I've always loved drawing, sewing, painting and photography, media I explored in some depth whilst completing my Fine Art Degree. I started embroidering around 10 years ago when our eldest son was born; I needed a project that was easy to pick up and put down so that I could look after him. Embroidery is a great medium for doing a bit here and there, and now we have 3 little ones, it is still perfect. I love lines, textures, colour-blocking, shapes, collaging and composition. Embroidery enables me to explore all of these.'
