Meet our artists, makers and creatives

We proudly present to you our artists, makers and creatives. They are the life blood of Shoreline, exhibiting, selling and teaching in Westgate Galleria and The Eclectic Art Gallery, Margate, and some participate in Margate Made’s pop-up events too. They are a diverse group, working in a very wide range of disciplines and mediums, but all share a passion for their art and a commitment to creating high quality, well-made, artisan products that will give much pleasure to their new owners.

I was so fed up buying clothes that didn’t fit properly that I decided to learn how to make as much of my own clothing as possible. Mostly through trial and error (and a whole lot of mistakes!) I learnt how to make all my own clothing. I now make everything I wear as well as anything else that can be sewn! Without a doubt, I am at my happiest when I am at my sewing machine making something new and exciting. Sewing is my form of therapy and meditation. With the added bonus that I get someth...

I am a Margate-based creative, currently focused on making wearable art and running Shoreline Partners. I moved to Margate three years ago, after a long career at Goldsmiths, University of London, and am loving living near the sea and the beach, amongst the creativity that abounds throughout Thanet. I have designed, made and sold contemporary jewellery, accessories and decorations for quite a few years now, specialising in seed-beaded pieces that use bold and quirky colour combinations. ...

I’ve been a photographer since the 1970s and also ran workshops in the community, taught within Adult Education, for an NHS mental health trust, and independently. Having used a darkroom for years I still mainly do my own printing – now digital. A few years ago I moved from London to Westgate-on-Sea. Different opportunities have opened up, for instance through POW!Thanet, including a collaboration with East Kent Mencap, ‘See Me & Hear My Voice’, and an exhibition ‘Life Lit Up’ in Clift...

I’m Susie and I live in Broadstairs in Kent in the UK ‘A Dance in the Moon Garden’ is my first book and it took me over a year to create. The initial ideas for the text came to me when I was driving in the rain and the windscreen wipers had a distinct rhythm, which seemed to suggest a rhythmic poem. The original images are watercolour, fine coloured pen and gel pen on Saunders paper. Some of them took more than three days to produce. I studied Fine Art at Newcastle University for six ye...

As an avid collector of Liberty and William Morris fabrics, I decided to use my skills and turn these fabrics into treasured and useful items. Some of my best sellers are my quilted tote bags and special occasion bags. Almost all my creatio...
