Sue Stone

Artist/Maker

I am an Artist/maker and teacher based in Grimsby, N E Lincolnshire. I am best known for textural, narrative compositions which often feature a fish; a symbol of my Grimsby heritage. Inspired by people, place and time my work often documents
social history and collected memories which are used to create the allusion of a journey through life. My work has its emphasis on hand embroidery often combined with machine stitch and paint. I trained in embroidery at Goldsmiths College in London before returning to my hometown of Grimsby to start a clothing and manufacturing business which I ran with my husband for 28 years returning to full time stitched artwork in 2003. I am an exhibiting member of the internationally renowned 62 Group of Textile Artists and a Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
