Born in 1979 in Shoreham By Sea, Rust Bucket Workshop spent her childhood days dreaming up characters from her imagination, creatures not of this world, misfits and the outright peculiar.
Inspired by the handmade and the make do and mend, she has carried this theme to her adult years in sculpture and drawings.
Rust Bucket Workshop studied Art and Design at Stroud College and has exhibited in various group shows and has had two solo exhibitions in Gloucester and Portsmouth. She works intuitively using a pallette of pewter and painted tin pots, together with purpose and useful whatnots, mixing the forgotten, dysfunctional and scrapped, giving life to the broken and unwanted. A mechanical ‘frankenstein’ of melancholic means give beauty to trashed and rejected machines, moving scrap into sculptural artisan delights.
