This morning was spent tidying my studio/spare room.. what a mess!!...
I love collecting junk, pieces of everyday objects, lost bits of my daughters games, things Ive picked up from the street, odds and ends from the past - and somehow incorporating them into my work.
Todays inspiration - Lucy Casson - does this in a fantastic way! She works mainly with metal, especially tin and creates these wonderful scenes with incredible details. I love the way she recycles objects and turns them into "cartoon-like characters (which) are based on the working people she sees in markets and factories in the city". Her use of colour is great, emphasising the original colours of the found tins.
