Rae Tribbick BSc (Hons) MSc PGCE

I am a process driven artist, writer, and sculptor. My work explores identity. I examine the ways in which stories we tell ourselves influence our own identity: Memories from childhood. Genetic inheritance. Scars.

 

I look at how we can enjoy, preserve and honour these relationships and stories through a range of mediums including free form writing, poetry, mark making and sculpture. My 3D work uses found objects and natural fibres, but I specialise in ceramics, enjoying the tactile nature of clay.

 

In my past I have been both a research scientist and a maths teacher. To me science and art are two sides of the same coin - ways to learn about ourselves, the world around us and the relationships in between.

I am a practising artist with over thirty years’ experience of creating important and valuable artworks in the public domain. With a specialism in architectural glass, I work across the UK, with commissions including artworks for the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, West Leigh Baptist Church in Essex and public art works in Oban and Blackburn amongst many others. Within the region my artworks include commissions at St Thomas' Church in Lancaster, St Johns Church, Silverdale and Morecambe Parish Church. 

 

Alongside my architectural glass commissions, I specialise in screen printing and have taught throughout my career.  I combine my commissioned and personal work with teaching a range of classes including screen printing,  life drawing, textile dyeing and printing, and painting.
