The Grey Elephant is the name I've given to identify myself and my little Rebots. They are made from vintage tins and found items.
Creating these Rebots allow me to use my imagination and have fun when planning which item will look best with another item. I've always enjoyed flea markets and this is an amazing outlet for that activity. I never know what I'll find. Sometimes I see something that is truly amazing but I have no idea what I'll do with it! Found items often sit in my studio for months until I find just the right piece to compliment them. Initially I was inspired by my love for the 80's film; 'Short Circuit'.
I also love to sew and have been making quilted/beaded wall hangings as well as duct cloth tote bags for a while now. I've sewn for as long as I can remember and am happy to have the time now to explore new techniques and fabrics.
Creating is relaxing and brings me to a peaceful place.
