Joe Little studied textiles and clothing at Scottish College of Textiles (Heriot Watt University). With more than 25 years in the fashion and clothing industry, he runs workshops globally; sharing his knowledge on textiles, colour and the sustainable sourcing of clothing. He works with Tesco and also advises on joint industry initiatives with other brands and retailers.
Joe finds inspiration for his drawing and painting in real people, real places and history.
The “silk route” and “spice colours” form the natural themes of his life, work and his art. He allows the impermanence of colours, cultures and diversities of the silk route to find permanence of life on his canvas. His art is a journey over sky, land and sea. Joe has clients in the UK, Russia, Turkey, Portugal, Nepal and China.
Joe has a permanent studio at Westbury Arts Centre:
