“I am self-trained and love to explore different ways of working, combining techniques like felting and embroidery to create my one-off pieces.

“To be recognised as an artist in an exhibition like this is a real achievement’ Said textile artist and mother Catherine Jackson.”

The exhibition in Masham features work inspired by the Yorkshire Dales including painting, papercutting, glass, textile and photography.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Swinton Estate.
