My Bio
Hello,

I'm Jessica Farrell and I love creating art from LEGO®. Although I come from a family of artists and as a child I enjoyed sketching and illustrating, I never considered myself talented enough to go anywhere with it. I also really enjoyed playing with LEGO® but as I grew up both art and LEGO® fell by the wayside and everyday living took over.
It was only years later when I realised my two passions could be combined and thus brought to a new level that things started to come together (literally!). As a horticulturalist and smallholder I am particularly fond of all things organic and natural so I try to encorporate this aspect into my work. I do, however, like to vary my subject matter as much as possible in order to explore new techniques and challenges.
There is a unique challenge when choosing LEGO® bricks as media. One must work within the limitations of a finite number of pieces, shapes and colours, yet with enough creativity the possibilities are limitless.
A further bit of paradox for me: LEGO® is of such high quality that the bricks are practically indestructable yet my models are ephemeral. Some models, once built and exhibited for a reasonable length of time, are broken down so I can reuse the (very expensive) parts in new models. Many models are not broken down, however, as some go on long - term tour and others are sold.
I am available for commissioned works; some of the models shown in my gallery were built on request.

I'm very impressed with this. It is both ethereal and solid at the same time; the crystalline "collar" is very effective and those eyes are so mesmerizing!

Fabulous colour, flowing form and background dynamic.
