Eleanor Anderson, alias Nora Cheverton Burrows can only label herself an artist if we all recognise each other and ourselves as artists, since creativity is not unique to one individual or community. Her intention is to make the arts more accessible to those that feel excluded from them. Using waste as a resource, Nora creates fully functional items, cripplingly aware of how, the harm that humankind has inflicted on the planet limits the time we have left here. Her practice falls into the recent crevice forged by the west between art and design-craft-life. She believes in the reunification of the two – art as synonymous with life, not elevated nor denigrated based on site or socioeconomic footing. Nora has a desperation to relate to some pagan genesis; traces of which can be seen in the items she makes. Her practice is a call to empowerment and agency in herself. A test in self-reliance and independence.
