Pulling plates out of a hot oven is an occupational hazard for me and I've been burned many times when just grabbing a tea towel instead of putting my mitt on. This time however my mitt caused me to burn myself as it caught on the hot oven rack above which stuck to my skin and came out of the oven along with the plate I was carrying... It might be time I bought some burn cream for my studio!
I've always made stuff and wanted to be an artist from the age of 14.I made my way to Art School in the late 80s and graduated with a BFA, majoring in Sculpture. After a short exhibiting career,I quickly discovered being a full time artist doesn't pay the bills, so went the commercial route.
I've worked in graphic design, audio visual and freelance set design as well as garden design and maintenance.In the mid 90s
my boyfriend and I got married at City Hall in Manhattan New York. We eloped actually as no-one knew until we were back home.I have two children, a boy Jasper and a girl Madison,named after Madison Avenue.
