Easedale Tarn, Lake District, 2021    My happy place!

Art has always been a huge part of my life since I was a child. I had a passion for drawing at a young age, it was rare to see me without a pen or pencil in my hand. I would often be drawing on my arms during class. During primary school I would often draw pictures of the Head teachers taxidermy fox he kept in his office. This is my earliest memory of taxidermy having an influence in my life. I was fascinated by the creature, its beauty forever preserved.

I never actually wanted to become an artist, in fact it was the last thing I wanted to do! However, my friends and family always encouraged me to follow this route and I am so grateful for it now more than ever. 

Art has always been more than just a subject to me, it is a way of life. I have always been fascinated by the artistic and natural world. Even when I was a child and teenager I wanted to pick up any dead animals I came across and longed to keep them forever preserved. However, being the weird kid anyway I never wanted to draw more attention to myself. These days I am proud to be myself and I'm not afraid to tell others about my "weird" fascinations. 

I studied art at GCSE, A Level, College and University, I was always unsure of what career route to go down but I stuck to what I enjoyed doing the most. 

Although after achieving my Bachelors degree in Illustration I lost my passion for drawing and painting, However my interest in taxidermy and oddities only grew, it was several months later when I decided to set up my small business. It has been the biggest part of my life for many years. 

I'm Jodie, I'm a self employed artist currently based in Nottinghamshire. I have spent most of my life creating art in many forms which led to me starting my own business in 2017. It has been a challenge with some difficult times but I'm still here making art and hoping my business will continue to grow.

I was born in the Lake district in 1995 and spent my childhood in the little town of Kendal, Cumbria, famous for it's mint cake! Then I spent my teenage years in Robin Hood's village, Edwinstowe in Nottinghamshire. I feel very grateful to have lived in both these quirky little locations. Since then I have spent 2 years on the outskirts of Rotherham in a dull grey, industrial town which although not my cup of tea, has made me appreciate the nicer places in the world. 

From March-September 2022 I was living in the stunning land of Pembrokeshire, South Wales. I have since relocated back to Nottinghamshire, I am now working full time but I am still running my business in any free time I have. I am working on myself and towards a better future. One day I hope to live that coastal lifestyle again. I am very grateful for my amazing customers and continued support over the years! Every order has helped keep me going!
