About Helen Bodycomb
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, from where I enjoy international collegial relationships with colleagues and patrons across Asia, Europe and the USA. Most of my work is commissioned by private and public clients in Australia, however I also enjoy a more experimental approach to mosaic and make un-commissioned works using ephemera such as flock, chicken wish- bones, VHS tapes and other non-traditional media. I conduct a small number of technique-based workshops in my studio each year, in addition to guest teaching across Australia and overseas.
Helen is delighted to be a Presenter at the 2016 AIMC Congress and to be able to take part in the Conference in Spilimbergo, Italy during May 2016. Helen is also thrilled to announce that her article “Making mosaics in the Anthropocene Era’ is to be published in the July 2016 issue of French magazine Mosaique Magazine (published in French with English translation).
Helen is currently making plans to lead a Mosaic Tour to the north of Italy in 2017, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
“I really delight in passing on what I know about art and making mosaics to motivated adults hungry for information about this unique, historic medium. After 6 years of full time Fine Art University studies and over 25 years of full-time professional practice I am well qualified to teach what I know. I am also currently completing a Masters Degree in Visual Art (by Practice-led Research) at La Trobe University.
