About Kay Vincent / LaserSister  lasercutting

In 2003 I took a sabbatical from my teaching job, to do a Master’s Degree in computing at Brighton University.

Unfortunately, three weeks into the course I was squashed by a car outside the university which broke my legs, right elbow, right shoulder, and pelvis.

While recovering from my injuries I started writing articles for craft magazines, and also did an MA in Creative Writing.

In 2011 I finally finished the MSc computing course I’d started in 2003…then completely ignored it and took a giant leap into the unknown by buying a laser cutter and starting a craft business. The business creates bespoke lasercut artworks for individuals, museums, and galleries. Please see my shop pages for more information.

So now I am an author, craftsperson and lasercutting business owner, and enjoying the adventure. Wish me luck!

Once you’ve finished reading about the Kay Vincent (LaserSister) lasercutting site I also have another website, KayVincent.com, for general (non-laser-y) matters. For example, in 2019 I decided to put all of the above experiences together, and started a PhD in Education. I’m currently looking into ways to encourage children – especially girls – to participate in ‘STEM’ subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
