Hedy Parry-Davies’ interest in three-dimensional art and craft, model making, stained glass, ceramics and working with paper led to her becoming an architect where she could see her designs materialising into three-dimensional constructions. For the past twenty years, Hedy has specialised in the conservation of historic buildings with a keen interest in traditional crafts and ‘above ground’ archaeology.
Throughout her architectural career, Hedy has maintained her interest in producing art and craft, increasingly so since 2012, and she currently works as a full-time artist.
Hedy’s work discernibly derives from her observations of the natural and the built environment, their textures and the marks left on them by time and human intervention.
Hedy lives and works in east London.
Member of ArtCan, a non-for-profit arts organisation which enables artists to sustain their practice.
