Skeletal Orchestration

2017-02-05T15:03:22+00:00November 18th, 2016|Art Blog, Art News|

A rather interesting tourist attraction I paid a visit to Sedlec Ossuary, Bohemia to the cemetery of the catholic Church of All Saints in Kutná Hora, Bohemia. On entering the crypt, I experienced the magnitude of being in such close proximity to the 40,000 human remains that have been beautifully and artistically laid to rest [...]

I was invited by the faculty of art at the University of Granada, to come and lecture to students studying to be art teachers. I was asked to speak about my work and the importance of art in life, something I feel very passionate about. My job was to inspire the students, so that they [...]

My Art Film Career

2016-10-31T12:05:20+00:00October 31st, 2016|Art Blog, Art News|

I was given some background information about the 60 students I was to give my talk to at the University of Granada, that they only value Baroque painting as a form of art and that they thought that all artists were financially poor and that being an artist is not a good life choice. So my job [...]

The Making of Ellen – The Duck Angel

2017-02-05T15:03:23+00:00October 16th, 2016|Art Blog, Art News|

During the Málaga art day I spent the day sculpting from my heart. I didn't know what I was going to make before hand and felt a bit anxious, as I have only done one previous public display of making art before. Usually I am shut away in my art studio alone, so working in [...]

Belly Bump Casting

2016-08-03T16:27:31+00:00May 7th, 2016|Art Blog, Art News|

I spent the day making a belly cast of my friend's pregnant bump! I brushed up on my casting skills by watching a bunch of video tutorials before starting and I leaned back on my past experiences of casting. It was all quite exciting, remembering how important the release agent is. We decided on just [...]

Airetiko – Ariel Art Retreat

Last week I attended a morning of life drawing at the Airetiko Ariel Art Retreat in the Las Alpujarras mountains, southern Spain. It was an exhilarating and creative experience because I had no time to think and I didn't know what was going to happen next. Would the super fit models hold their poses long [...]

Thank you to my talented friends, Albi Knight (film student) and Dara Harbison (photography student), for inspiring these photographs with their light paintings.

Eight second [...]

Titty Fountain – Work in Progress

2017-02-05T15:03:23+00:00December 16th, 2015|Art Blog, Art News|

I have been spending weeks and weeks working on one piece at this term at ceramics class. Keeping the piece wet under plastic and working in sections that will fit inside the kiln. The functionality has taken lots of planning, for example where the cable for the underwater LED strip lights go and how to [...]
