Tamsin Abbott

How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Stained Glass Illustrator

My work is inspired by the British Countryside, not just its beauty and drama but also the invisible tapestry of its myth and folklore interwoven in it. I love our familiar flora and fauna that we feel connected to, as well as the everyday human events such as hanging out the washing or keeping snug inside during the wintertime. I try to imbue even the smallest pieces of my work with this sense of magic, to do justice both to the subject matter of my work but also to the glass itself; a material with alchemical qualities and a mystery all of its own.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an artist I just part of life itself. It can be full of an enchantment so fulfilling that it can take one out of the ordinary existence of life but it can also be an incredible struggle to keep going and be self-motivated and self-assured.

CV & Education: 

I have a first class honours degree in literature specializing in Medieval literature.

I have an A level in Art and a btec in Foundation Art.

18 years ago I attended an evening class at Hereford College of Art in stained glass. After 3 years I stopped attending the course and began to sell my work. Occasionally I have attended one-day workshops in areas specific to glass in order to develop my practice but on the whole I have developed my style and manner of working as I have gone along. I recently realised that I now 'think' in stained glass designs!

Practice & Activities: 
My practice mainly consists of making work to sell in galleries which are mainly centred around the Marches although I do take part in exhibitions in Great Britain
Exhibitions: 

I have taken part in many mixed exhibitions across the country.
