Jose Heroys

Jose Heroys is a fiber artist who makes bird sculptures and fiber art in her Sussex studio. The inspiration for her work comes from a life-long love of birds, nature, and wildlife.

“I’m a Tassel Maker, Macramé Knotter, Potter, Thrifter, Collector, Mother and Cactus Lover!”

“I find inspiration from the making process, one idea always leads to another then another! I’m constantly looking to create a variety of things and I’m not afraid to experiment and try new things. Not everything works but that is part of the fun! I keep motivated by engaging with the most amazing design and maker community on Instagram! I love the blogging community and have made many dear friends too.”
