My name is Jasmine Renold and I live in Bolton, UK.
I work with wire: knitted, tangled and as a tool for painting. I love wire for its malleability and resistance. Sometimes it has a mind of its own and veers on its own path. The themes of flight, freedom, constraint and being stuck or trapped are evident throughout my work. Sometimes there is a sense of how we restrain ourselves from being free.
I am passionate about creativity have developed my own ‘degree’ path. Check out my blog below: wyrdcreativity.
My other disciplines are Physics, Music and Computing and so often my creative and logical sides do battle. I am currently a member of the Neoartists group in Bolton.

WYRD: Old English wyrd is a verbal noun formed from the verb weorpan, meaning “to come to pass, to become“. The term developed into the modern English adjective weird. Adjectival use develops in the 15th century, in the sense “having the power to control fate“. (Source: Wikipedia)
