The Riverside Café Gallery is pleased to present a collection of work by Jessica Taylor, where several projects have been united for an exhibition which will run alongside Thread, a festival of textiles.

Jessica aka Loadofolbobbins, is a textile artist and illustrator based down by the sea in Portsmouth. A lot of her work aims to give voice to those who are often overlooked or forgotten, either by history or their contemporaries. Alongside this, with Thread as her ‘ink’, Jessica has created more illustrative work including a series of pieces inspired by classic literature.

Jessica graduated from Winchester School of Art with a BA(Hons) in Textile Art in 2008 and in 2011 was the Gold Medal winner of the ‘London Lives: Travel’ competition at the Bankside Gallery; her winning piece is now on permanent display at the Bankside entrance of Blackfriars station, tantalisingly close to the Tate Modern. Her work has been shown in a variety of places across the UK including The Islington Arts Factory, gallery@Oxo, The Proud Archivist and The Cornerhouse, Manchester and in 2016 she was an exhibiting artist at the 20th National Open Art Competition. She has an Etsy shop, writes a monthly column for Mr X Stitch and has her own website www.loadofolbobbins.com.

from 01 June – 6 July 2018.
