Josie completed her BA in Embroidery at Manchester School of Art (MMU) in 2012. Before transferring to the Embroidery course, she also completed a year in Textiles, which incorporated knit, weave and printed textiles.
She has worked as an artist assistant, collaborating and advising on projects, as well as instructing and working with interns in her current job at Holbrook Studio.
Josie has been teaching with Art-Atelier for two years, taking regular weekly classes as well as holiday workshops. Drawing and observation has always been the basis for much of her own work and she believes this should be at the core of art education.
