Welcome to my website.
Wow! Really pleased to have just exhibited three of my sculptures (see 'Blue Cuttlefish' above) at Mall Galleries, London, in the Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual exhibition! This is the second time I have had my work selected and with over 2500 submissions that's quite an achievement!
'Making a Mark' is a top art blog for artists and art lovers: news about major art competitions and exhibitions, interviews with artists, techniques and tips for art and business. I was delighted that they noted my work: "I loved Elaine Milford's cuttlefish in different colours... "
I'm a British artist who has worked internationally in places such as Prague, Skopje, Lublijana, Venice, and, more recently, Ankara. In Prague, I had a one month solo installation 'Chrysalis' at Gucci, central Prague. In Macedonia, I participated in numerous group exhibitions with artist like Reshat Ameti, Adem Kastrati, Osman Demiri and Maria Pavlovska. I was invited to exhibit in the 'I And The Other' exhibition, 2001, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Skopje. This brought together artists from all ethnic backgrounds in a celebration of unity following the event of the Kosovo war and Macedonia's own internal conflict. My work, 'Force of Anger' became part of the gallery's permanent collection, (view under 'other work' in the menu).
During my time in Slovenia, I was Artist in Residence for a year at the privately owned 'Imprima' Gallery, and a further six months at Gallery Zula, both based in central Ljubljana. I exhibited with both local and international artists. I also participated at the annual Artists Retreat at Kranjska Gora along with Alfredo Garcia Andres (Spain) and Noel Gomez (Cuba)
In Venice, I was commissioned by 'English Theatre in Venice' to design and produce stage sets for productions such as Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing' at Teatro Nuovo on Fondamenta Nuova.
I had planned to hold a series of sculpture and painting workshops in the summer of 2020 at my studio in Cardiff. however, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these workshops have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. I hope to be able to initiate something in 2021. Please watch this space.
