Jacky Puzey originally trained in fine art, working increasingly in textile and wearable artworks. While completing a PhD in Fashion, Textiles and Visual Culture at Bath Spa University, she began to specialise in digital embroidery, textiles and bespoke tailoring.
In 2012 she launched her own embroidery business specialising in creative commissions and projects for interiors. After winning the Hand and Lock prize for Embroidery in 2015, she was selected by the Crafts Council to be part of their prestigious Hothouse scheme in 2016, and subsequently showed at New Designers One Year On in 2016.
The work is inspired by her experiences in diverse cultures and communities, from Panama and Kenya to Bristol. She also takes inspiration from both Chinoiserie motifs and tattoo imagery in her beautiful wallpaper designs.
I love the wildlife stories that come alive in Jacky’s work. The way that she combines feathers, fur and organza with the processes of digital embroidery and laser cutting. Her colours are always rich and vibrant and her pieces are all beautiful works of art. The Squirrel and Peacock Ottoman and the Parakeets Cocktail chair are my favourites.
Jacky works to commission for bespoke embroidered pieces. She offers a range of products for interiors, including wall and room screens and wallpaper. She undertakes collaborations with designers and can produce unique designs to their requirements. She now shows at London Craft Week, Decorex with Design Nation, and selected exhibitions.
