Bethan Lloyd is a Conceptual Textiles Artist and recent BCU Graduate with First Class BA (Hons) Fine Art.

Jude explores the concept of natural graffiti and uses mark-making as inspiration for her work with photography and textiles.She uses her immediate surroundings as a source of rich visual information.
The marks made by cracked and peeling paint and other man made shapes and materials are usually in a stark contrast to the natural growth and decay in forgotten places and abandoned industrial buildings.
“I use natural materials such as wool and silk to make large scale and installation pieces that respond to the environment they are placed in”
