Sassy Connors was born in Devon, and, after moving away as a child, spent many of her school holidays in the South West. Sassy returned to Devon to go to university, and now lives in Exeter with her young family. Having previously taught in primary schools, Sassy decided to change direction to develop her creative talents. Sassy has always had a love of art and textiles. She has combined these two loves through the technique of two dimensional needle felting. Able to experiment with both texture and colour, Sassy draws inspiration from nature, and the beautiful, evocative and awe inspiring Devon landscapes which she has known her whole life. Whilst predominantly working in two dimensions, Sassy is developing three dimensional techniques to enhance her pieces, and is always keen to experiment with her work.
