Corinne Thompson. Artist ~ Sculptor
I live in East Kent, in a village situated just outside of Canterbury surrounded by the rolling hills of the Elham Valley. I work from my gorgeous little studio at home, where I live with my husband, Allan, our son Felix, daughter Edie and our two dogs Mabelle and Winston, horses and guineapigs!
From my earliest memory, animals have always been a part of my life. I have spent so much time in their company and as a child I spent a lot of my time studying them without even knowing it! There's so much variation on their different forms, colours and textures. I enjoy the challenge of translating this and their characters and movement into my creations.
I like to team my subject matter with colour. I generally use block colour as I like the contrast of this against the subject but I love textures to, especially crackles! Nature is the ultimate craftsperson and provides our senses with so many stimuli and I'm so lucky to live in an environment where I am inspired by its beauty daily.
