About Jeanette (Gin)

Having been working as a full time maker since graduating from Bucks Univesity in 2011, Gin draws her inspiration from traditions of folklore, fairy stories alongside a lifelong fascination with the natural world.

Gin states that her chosen medium of clay as an extension of her drawing and illustration practice, in that one informs the other. Her fingers draw and shape the clay to represent tactile forms based on anatomically correct studies, however the expressive nature of the creative process leads to certain details and characteristics being enhanced and exaggerated resulting in work that is full of life and character.
