Art: Original artwork, limited edition giclée prints, cards
Astrig works in pastels, oils and other mixed media, including collage, using her innate sense of colour to create harmonious semi-abstract images.
Astrig obtained a Degree in Ceramics from the Central School of Art and Design, London having wanted to work with clay from an early age. From there she went on to sell her work through various galleries and shops around the country as well as selling regularly from a stall in Covent Garden Craft Market.
After a number of years selling her ceramics, she made a decision to have a career change. Over a 25 year span, she worked as a freelance painter and art finisher in the film industry. Creature FX projects from ‘Gladiator’, ‘The Mummy’ to ‘Mars Attacks’ and ‘Harry Potter’.
A move to Cambridge six years ago has meant that Astrig now concentrates fully on her 2D artwork which is based on her travels around England and Ireland in her campervan, and her ongoing passion for life drawing. New work this year has also been inspired by trips to local allotments.
Astrig is a member of the Cambridge Drawing Society and participates regularly in Cambridge Open Studios.
