Helen Bodycomb Mosaics
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 am delighted that in April 2014 I will be in the US as a Guest Workshop Presenter for SAMA (Society of American Mosaic Artists). My third time teaching at SAMA conferences (Miami 2008, Chicago 2010) I hope this visit to Houston will be equally exciting.
