Young Stoke-on-Trent artist wins New Art West Midlands award


A Stoke-on-Trent student has won an award for her talented artwork.

Jade Simpson, 21, from Chatterley Whitfield, near Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, studied Fine Art at Staffordshire University.

She has scooped an award from the New Art West Midlands group, which aims to highlight creative new artists from institutes across the UK.

Jade was one of five winners in the competition.

As well as winning the award, she won £1,000 which she aims to spend on more art work and to invest on creating studios to work in in Stoke-on-Trent.

She said: “I was overjoyed to be a winner as the competition was strong.

“I want my work to become famous and appear in galleries all over the world.”

Her art is based on natural history and how the world views the natural world, including wildlife.

She uses materials and objects such as cardboard, wood, fur and fabric.

Jade’s work is currently on display at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery until May 17.
