About

I am a screen printing seamstress from Newcastle. I hold a studio in the Big Lamp Artists Cooperative (@talktoBLAC on instagram) just outside the city center with 4 other artists.

Grim Realities actually started life as a production company when I was making stop motion animations, but unfortunately cameras and computers are expensive things so I kept my sketchy collaged ideas and turned to screen printing.

All the designs are my own and most of the clothing I use is secondhand from local charity shops because I hate throw away culture and sweatshop labour. Grim isn't a big thing so most of the money just goes straight back into the studio and the materials so I can keep doing what I love.
