About Jacky Puzey

Jacky Puzey combines traditional embroidery skills with digital technology to stitch stunning 3D tableaux in rich, vibrant colours that flow across furniture, walls and clothes. Featuring a menagerie of embellished creatures; squirrels chatter, foxes prowl and parakeets pirouette in Jacky’s feral pageant.

Jacky fuses fur, feathers, velvet and organza with digital embroidery and unique fabrics of her own design, to create touch-me textures and to bring her pieces alive. From feathered interior screens to shimmering metallic bomber jackets, Jacky’s creations combine references to classical mythology, hints of baroque decadence and a nod to punk rebellion. They are dazzling and exquisitely detailed.

Her interiors collections are embellished with layered histories and intricate embroidery to create a luxurious urban baroque; from statement cocktail chairs to couture embroidered wallpapers. In addition to Jacky’s current collections, bespoke commissions for private clients and interior designers are welcomed.
