about

Serena Partridge is a visual artist currently based at Crescent Arts in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

She creates small-scale accessories and garments inspired by historical costume and storytelling. Her works are presented as museum acquisitions, encased with labels that blur boundaries between fact and fiction. Serena uses a wide range of materials and techniques, but primarily antique leather and silk, which she embroiders and fashions with meticulous hand stitching.

Serena has exhibited nationally and internationally. Recent shows include Portrait of a Lady at Chawton House Library, Hampshire and ‘Charlotte Great and Small’ at the Brontë Parsonage Museum, West Yorkshire.

Alongside creating her own work Serena is an artist facilitator for a variety of groups including schools, youth communities and the Embroiderers’ Guild. She has been artist-in-residence at several locations such as the Royal Pump Room Museum, Harrogate and at Scalloway Booth in the Shetland Isles. Other engagement has included projects with York Theatre Royal, Malton Hospital and Kensington Palace, London.
