A Floral Tribute

2017-10-24T18:31:28+00:00October 23rd, 2017|Art Blog, Art News|

My beautiful friend, Claire Maclean aka ClaraBaza, has died. She was an artist, musician and she made gourds into art objects. She was a light in my and so many others lives, she was dependable and fun. I miss her. It wasn't sudden, she had a cerebral haemorrhage a few days after the opening night [...]

Velez Benaudalla Brochure Cover

2017-06-10T13:23:29+00:00June 10th, 2017|Art Blog, Art News|

I was asked by the town hall to create the front page for the local fiesta brochure. My husband, Honza, and I collaborated on the project, with the idea to reflect the ancient Moorish and Christian battle reenactment that takes place during the fiesta. We decided upon using a repeat moorish vector design for the [...]

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

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

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

2017-02-05T15:03:23+00:00May 3rd, 2016|Art Blog, Art News|

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 [...]
