“Punky stuff made with love!”
Based in the rural Lincolnshire Fens, I live with my husbunny and two house rabbits... were all about the bunnies here! I spend my spare time, little as it is, studying the Renaissance, reading about pre-history, ancient civilisations and conspiracy theories. I am very intrigued as to where we really come from and love to paint my thoughts onto stones.
Colour inspiration comes from my garden, where I grow fruit and veg. Whilst I tend to all the needs of my plants, they generally are allowed to go where they please. I especially have a passion for cultivating daisies in my lawn, they are great for the bees! With all the animals and birds that visit, seasonal colour palettes and the array of colours supplied by the flatter-than-flat surrounding area, I am spoilt for choice. My love for colour stems from trips to Venice, where I studied the colours of Venetian architecture and light for my Masters Degree in Venetian glass. The initial start to any creation begins with colour.
Cats Punky Stuff came about when I realised most contemporary crafts are very similar, which Im sure, is due to the fact craft supplies are so easy to buy on the high street or online. I set out to make things that I knew no one else could possibly make, by using my own drawings, advanced colour theory, extensive raw materials research, not cutting costs with the quality of materials and hours of product development. Before the internet, people actually made their crafts from scratch with maybe some raw materials from local suppliers, ensuring new crafts were unique and different. All of my crafted pieces are one-offs, no two can possibly be the same.
We are happy and content at home creating, gardening, preserving produce and keeping an eye on our very cheeky house rabbits and our honey bees. We got rid of the television ten years ago so instead youll find anything from Bach to Black Sabbath blasting out...the luxury of no neighbours! If were not at home or in the veg patch, youll find us at in a mosh pit at a music festival somewhere!
