TRICIA FRANCES ART

Thought Creates!

Hi and welcome to 2022!

After many years and around 250,000 views on my old website I thought it was time for a change - and very Happy I am!!  Here I will bring you news of my events and workshops and showcase my creations. Please check back often to see whats new,  or scroll down to the About section to find out who I am! 

You can check out more of my creations here https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/BazaarOfDreams or go to my FB pages Tricia.Frances.Art or bazaarofdreams   

 LATEST NEWS

Now that covid restrictions are lifted I will once again be running art & craft workshops. The venue is Handmade Gifts & Gallery in Anglia Square Norwich. I will be limiting most workshops to 6 so that each person has their own space. Masks are still welcome if you want to wear one. Hand Sanitiser is available. Each person will have access to individual kits for the workshop. My occasional studio workshops and destash sales will be in my garden studio...wear a coat!.  Please check out the Classes & Workshops or Events sections.

Hope to meet you soon!        Tricia Frances

20% of art sales was donated to Pricilla Bacon Lodge in December 2021. They cared for my Daughter Wendy who passed away from breast cancer in August 2021. Donations can still be made:

ABOUT - Artist
I am a Mixed Media Artist, Author, designer and teacher living in Norfolk. When I left school at 16, in the 60’s, I was already designing clothes and my crochet garments were being sold in Biba, London.
I went to art college in the 70’s then for the next 25 years I had an historical and theatrical costume and prop company ‘Will-O-Wisp’ in London & Norfolk.
I thought that a change of direction might be a good idea following this. So first I founded a charity 'The Light Foundation', and set up childrens (Childwise) and educational (Sayana Wolf trust) projects. Then, on my way to become an educational psychologist I discovered I loved teaching children and taught art and textiles in high schools for the next 15 years. Since retiring from teaching a few years ago I have worked from my home & garden studios and sell my creations from my online Etsy shop, Bazaar of Dreams, and at Handmade Gifts & Gallery in Norwich. I will always love teaching and run several Art & Craft courses locally throughout the year and am involved with Norwich Makers Festival and Open Studios.
Although I have had many solo and collaborative exhibitions over the years, my more recent highlights would be my role as founder of ACME Art & Craft Markets (putting on exhibitions for up to 50 artists during Open Studios), being commissioned to make a miniature room box for the V&A Small Stories touring exhibition at Norwich Castle Museum in 2017 and then in 2018 reprising my role as costumier by making the White Face Clown costume for Foolhardy circus for the 250 years of Circus celebration.
My future plan is to continue to do what I love: - to create Art & teach and to finally write my autobiography as I have a very interesting family tree!!
Thought Creates!!!
About - Author
 Tricia Frances deGray Author
A Writer and Artist since the age of 15, I have had many poems, articles and stories published, and a few books of poetry and a Vegan cookbook. I had worked as a costumier for 20 years but always found outlets for my writing, becoming the East Anglian review contributor for Heckler magazine and as reporter for the local paper. In the 90's I had a book deal on the cards but fate took a hand and my life went in a different direction - as is often the case. I became a high school art & textiles teacher and have 4 and half degrees including an M.Ed.
I am now working on my Autobiography 'IT'S ALL ABOUT ME!' - 'William the Conquerors Grandfather' .
On researching my autobiography I found that my family of Gray / Grey was well documented going back hundreds of years and spanned many countries.
Knowing at the age of 15 that I would write this book when I retire, it is finally happening and due for release this year - 2022
I live in Norwich with my adopted fish. I write downstairs in my office and create art upstairs in my studio - the perfect combination!
