Candy Medusa

Candy Medusa of Black Dwarf Designs is an artist, illustrator, marine biologist and loudmouth, constantly confused as to why artists’ statements are supposed to be in the third person.

Specialising in digital media, pen and ink, upcycling and mixed media, she draws much of her inspiration from nature and is passionate about the environment. She mostly makes art between midnight and 4am when the kids are asleep.

Candy is founder of eXXhibition, a not-for-profit raising awareness of marine plastic pollution through art.
