Anne-Marie Stijelja:  Artist, creator and curator of art spaces in and around Bedford

August 2016: Weaving Naratives - Bedford Borough Council & Luton and Flitwick Libraries

The old childrens ward at Bedford hospital has an

amazing array of Victorian tiles depicting nursery

rhymes. I was inspired to reproduce them onto fabric and embellish with stitch and beeds as part a collaboration

with Bedford Archives & Records Service.


July 2016: The Bluebell Gallery Bedford Hospital

I was thrilled to be able to create a new Art Gallery Space

in the heart of the hospital. This project was inspired by

and dedicated to the memory of my mother Rita, who worked at the Hospital as a Midwife for many years.


July 2016: Music In The Garden

I created a number of music inspired pieces for Jazz legend Cleo Lane's 14th annual festival in memory of husband and Jazz supremo Johnny Dankworth. The highlight for me was not just seeing my work bringing joy to those in the grounds, but Cleo being joined on stage to sing with daughter Jacqui and grandaughter Emily Dankworth...I even managed to get a selfie with the legend.
