“I make sculptures and drawings inspired by the colour, movement and diverse quirkiness of the sea’s fragile gardens. My practice is centred around the tactile process of manipulating and stitching into a variety of media; juxtaposing contrasting textures.”

I create British botanical jewellery and keepsakes which originated from my children picking flowers from the garden and wanting to encapsulate the moment in something beautiful to wear. I use my own collection of flowers to create one-off pieces and take my clients special items, to create their own keepsakes, to save their memories in wearable pieces.

Growing up in rural Leicestershire, I was taught by my gran how to grow flowers. Now living in London, I have taken my small plot and turned it into a flower haven where many of my pieces start from seed. Throughout the year, I pick and dry my flowers which I then arrange in glass spheres with cocktail sticks and tweezers before sealing them from the elements in either silver or gold.

Working from my studio in Harrow, I use mixed media including glass, semi-precious stones, silver, metals, copper foiling and leading to create unique pieces. I enjoy recycling old items like china, silver cutlery and glass bottles and incorporating them in my art. My other passion is creating art with fabrics and embroidery.

Influenced and inspired by the natural world around me I explore colour, texture and light. I am fascinated by the way glass is transformed in the kiln.

My work is a constant search for the best way I can interpret my ideas. I enjoy the challenge of learning new techniques and working with different mediums which allow me to express different ideas and explore deeper into a subject.

I am an Australian artist living and working in Pinner. I create mixed media sculptures and drawings, usually incorporating stitch. My inspiration is found through looking and drawing and from the variety of bits and bobs I collect. Each piece evolves through the tactile process of combining materials with contrasting textures and origins. A piece may start with drawings and imagination but as stitches are added the unique personality of each emerges.

The Maker’s Art at the Heath Robinson Museum is a contemporary range of ceramics, jewellery and printed textiles that complement the imagination and enchantment of Heath Robinson’s work. The makers change every six months. Harrow Open Studios’ artists Nicole Lyster and and Lizzy Chambers have been selected for the tenth group who will be launched in mid-October just in time for the museum’s 5th birthday.

The Heath Robinson Museum introduces the new makers:

Nicole Lyster who lives on the Pinner/Rayners Lane borders, will be our next ceramicist. Her work is full of intriguing ideas that tell a great story. Our jeweller will be Lizzy Chambers from Wembley, who specialises in the highly original use of unexpected objects such as dandelion seeds and watch pieces. Thirdly we will welcome Jess Chan from South-West London, whose work, including scarves and bags, focuses on printed textiles and natural dyes.
