Josie is a mixed media and collage artist who has run the Masham Gallery for many years. She has built up a rich knowledge of a wide variety of media and techniques, which she imparts with enthusiasm! Josie’s latest exhibition at Southwell Cathedral has attracted much comment – her striking sculptures created using mixed media – collage, paper, fabric, paint and stitching, are moving and thought provoking.

“The gradual building of ‘skills’ gave me a different perspective – not just paper but a potential picture”
