When not working, Stacey loves photography, going to gigs and festivals and walking her 8-month-old Border Terrier puppy.
Read on to find out more about her retro inspirations and more.
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I am a full-time teacher of Art and Design at an Academy in Sandwell and part-time creator.
I am inspired by nostalgia and all things cool and pretty and create jewellery, illustrations, prints and greetings cards under the name Things and Such.
What are your inspirations?
My main inspirations are everyday items from past, I love old forms of communication such as the typewriter or vintage telephones. I still collect vinyl records and listen to new wave so I think I am definitely stuck in the wrong era! I feel my work reflects this but with a modern revamp.
What’s your favourite piece of work you have produced?
Who is your favourite ‘creative’ in your chosen field?
I am a huge fan of Robert Rauschenberg. I think his works have given many artists and creators the freedom to explore and amalgamate many materials and techniques and enjoy pieces simply for variety and texture.
