Gigha Klinkenborg (aka: Mrs Klinky)
Hi, I'm Gigha, and I am named after a beautiful Island situated just off the west coast of Scotland.
I'm a total craftaholic! A serial glass artist, stitcher, painter and total hoarder of craft supplies and anything that could be used for crafting purposes!
I have my own studio in Bideford on the first floor of an old Victorain warehouse on Torridge Hill.
I have been creating with stained glass since the 1990s and never tire of making beautiful things from a varety of differnt types of glass. I find cutting glass and turning it into something colourful particularly therapeutic and the end results are extremely rewarding.
The same goes for splashing paint onto canvas, paper, walls or any other substrate for that matter!
I live in Bideford, North Devon with Mr Klinky (Carl) who restores Classic VWs. He is also a part-time Rock DJ and acoustic/audio pedant! If you're local to Bideford, you're bound to see our lovely 1974 van (Burn-E the 'FEUERWEHR' fire bus) around town.
