About Helen Bodycomb

Mosaic Artist

I am a contemporary artist who, having initially trained as painter, now practices predominantly in stone and glass (mosaic) and sculpture. I live and work in Central Victoria, Australia, and am currently engaged in practice-led research at La Trobe University, where I am doing a PhD. My research project is titled ’The Material and The Immaterial’ and is an exploration of classical mosaic methods in contemporary works. I have several streams to my practice: much of my work is commissioned by private and public clients, I teach a small number of  technique-based workshops each year across Australia and overseas, and maintain a vigorous and increasingly experimental studio and exhibition practice.

Latest news:

Helen has just released various dates for teaching in 2019 and for Leading another inspiring Mosaic Study Tour in 2019.
