‘Born in West Yorkshire, Véronique has settled in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, where she gained her degree in Fine Art Painting and Printmaking at the Sheffield Hallam University. She is an experienced qualified tutor with over eleven years of experience tutoring adults. Her knowledge and expertise is broad, offering tuition in drawing and painting using all media.

Véronique uses various aspects of nature as subject matter for her work, her main interests being garden flowers depicted in their natural outdoor environment. Her work also examines the relationship between people and nature and how we interact with the natural world surrounding us. Choosing oil as her preferred medium, Véronique feels it enables her to truly express herself and the beauties of nature. Her work can be seen locally and are in private collections across the UK and America.’

‘I have been a Polymer Clay artist for over 30 years (time does fly when you’re having fun!) I started working with Fimo (brand of clay) whilst I was working at a school for young children who suffered from a visual impairment. One of the children brought the clay to school after the Christmas holidays, and we made all sorts of wonderful things… and that’s how I became hooked! ‘

‘Frankly Frances designs and makes unique knitted, sewn and crocheted accessories or you and your home. All handmade by Frankly Frances from luxury textiles, yarns & leathers, often upcycled, sometimes vintage.
l am increasingly using upcycled and recycled textiles. I use upcycled wool knitwear to make hats and cushions. I make scrubbies and face cloths from 100% cotton yarn, machine washable, reusable – in direct response to the pollution of the seas and land from wet wipes and plastics. I hand knit mitts, hats, headwarmers, scarves, snoods from luxury yarns. Shoulder bags are made from wool tweeds and upcycled leather offcuts. Wool tweed cushions have vintage velvet or felted wool applique hearts.’

‘I have been involved in ceramics for seventeen years now and I am still learning different
techniques and ways of creating pieces using glazes, slips, clays, underglazes and oxides.
My preferred method of creating has always been the pottery wheel and have worked toward
a production pottery style of throwing and strive to make my work usable, beautiful and affordable.

As well as teaching throwing at the Art House I have a small studio I built three years ago. I retired from the N.H.S. two years ago where I worked in an adult acute mental health hospital facilitating pottery sessions for patients as a therapeutic activity, patients found this helpful and a considerable number of people continued working with clay as an art form and as a therapeutic activity on leaving hospital. My work can be viewed at the Art House and on my Instagram site.
