Chloe McGenn's Profile
I'm inspired by dichotomies - hard and soft, life and death, youth and decay. Most of my work at college has focused on the transformation of objects into the unexpected, and I like to think some of that comes through in my work for sale, particularly my jewellery. I like to make accessories that people wouldn't expect.
I do custom work, but work best when given a free reign. If someone gives me a pair of socks and asks me to make a creature, and I can do whatever I like with them... that's when I love my work. I also love custom paintings, again as long as people allow me to do my own thing - I can't reproduce photos (well, I possibly could, but why would I bother!) but I can do a good likeness of animals using unusual colours. Being asked to make a cookery themed bronze necklace was my favourite custom jewellery so far.
