Back in 2017 I found myself in want of fun. An escape from the humdrum life I found myself in. I was a stay at home mum with 2 gorgeous tinies and a house to clean. It was fine but I’d always been creative and I needed an outlet.
My degree in textile printing was proving less than useful without access to a print studio. So I looked around for what I could do. I’m a hands-on kind of maker so concrete really appealed. It’s such a brutal, rugged material and hugely under appreciated. I felt like I’d found myself!
Over the years my family have put up with concrete chunks on the kitchen table, stock on every free surface and a very dusty Zoe! But a happy Zoe too. The range has grown along with my confidence. I’ve meet the most incredible network of creatives all over Scotland (and further a field) and I’m genuinely proud of the business I’ve grown in my filthy dusty garage.
More recently I’ve begun exploring the far edge of concretes capabilities in my sculptures. These one of a kind artworks are very different from my homewares and jewellery but I hope they engage and inspire. I hope you’ll join me on the journey to see where it takes me next.
