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.
“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.
