Eco art, upcycling, illustration.


Candy Medusa 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, mixed media and upcycling, 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 has exhibited locally, nationally and internationally, including with the Royal Society of Marine Artists at Mall Galleries in London, the Brighton, Adur and Worthing art trails, and with Creative Action Network in America and Bahrain.

Candy is a member of the Montague Gallery in Worthing, Creative Action Network in San Francisco and the Adur Art Collective, and is also the founder of the eXXhibition project, raising awareness of plastic pollution, organising beach cleans and workshops, and upcycling beach litter into art.

For commissions, workshops, licensing, or just to say hi, do get in touch.
