A little bit about Crafty Alfredo.
Crafty Alfredo (also known as Sheila) creates multimedia mosaics and stained glass from her lovely little she-shed in Staxton, which is nestled between the Wolds, the Moors and the Sea in North Yorkshire.
Sheila's work is inspired by the landscape and creatures of North Yorkshire, her love of sea swimming and her strange and wonderful musings.
Coming from a background of engineering, the move into the practical crafts of mosaicing and stained glass seemed a natural segway to Sheila. Undertaking some excellent courses and spending many years developing a unique style, she often collaborates with other local artists and makers to integrate their ceramic and fused glass pieces into her designs.
All her unique multimedia mosaics are hand crafted and have found their forever homes around the world.
She also really enjoys working closely on commissions with her lovely customers and delights in developing their ideas with them to make pieces that they love to own.
You can find her mosaics & other creations at Staithes Arts and Crafts Centre and this year, Sheila is also taking part in Whitby Art Fair, Thornton-Le-Dale show and Helmsley Artisans Fair.
