Welcome to my website!

Earlier this year, I was pleased to have my sculpture 'Red Siamese Fighting Fish' exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition at Mall Galleries, London, in April 2021. 

This was a national exhibition attracting very strong competition and I was proud to have my work selected.

These exquisite creatures are widely exploited for their fierce aggression when faced by other males when they will fight to the death.

A bit about me...
I am a British painter and sculptor who has worked and exhibited both in the U.K and abroad.
Here's a brief summary of my experience abroad. While In Prague, I exhibited 'Chrysalis', an installation piece, at Gucci, central Prague, for a month.  In Northern Macedonia, I exhibited widely with my friend and artist, Reshat Ameti, along with many other local artists. Back in 2000, I was invited to exhibit at the National Museum of Contemporary Art's  'I and the Other' exhibition, bringing together artists from many ethnic groups after the conclusion of the Kosovo war and N.Macedonia's own internal conflict. My piece 'Force of Anger'  (view by clicking Earlier Work on menu) became part of the gallery's permanent collection. While in Slovenia, I was artist in residence' at the then 'Imprima' Gallery in Ljubljana for a year and then a further six months at Gallery Zula. During my time there, I exhibited with many artists from the region. In Venice, I was invited to design the set for English Theatre in Venice's production of 'Much Ado About Nothing', at Teatro Fondamenta Nuova. Since moving to Wales, at the end 2013, I set up my studio and have since exhibited with many local artists. 

Plans

I had planned to hold a series of sculpture and painting workshops in the summer of 2020 at my studio in Cardiff, however, the Covid-19 pandemic prevented that. I was hoping that 2021 might present an opportunity to run a course but this is also looking increasingly unlikely. Oh well, watch this space!

In September - October 2020, I exhibited three of my sculptures (see 'Blue Cuttlefish' above) at Mall Galleries, London, in the Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual exhibition; an achievement with over 2500 submissions! See more under the menu heading 'Sealife sculptures - cuttlefish'. This is the second time I have had my work selected, in 2018, I exhibited 'Octopus 1' with the RSMA, click on 'Octopusses and Crabs' on menu heading ' Sealife sculptures'.
'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... "
