Josie Russell is a freelance textile artist based in Gwynedd, North Wales. Her deep-rooted passion for art and design began when she was very young, and carries on to the present day. Josie has achieved both a BA in Graphic Design and a National Diploma in Art and Design. Josie feels a deep connection with the countryside, so perhaps it is no surprise that the un spoilt mountains, flora and fauna of North Wales form the basis for most of her creative work.
Josie is concerned about current ecological issues, and strives to keep her environmental impact to a minimum. She feels that beautiful, unique artwork does not have to cost hundreds of pounds to create or cause a detriment to our surroundings. As a result, only the bare minimum of her materials are bought new allowing most of her expenditure, to find its way back to charity, rather than large manufacturing corporations.
