Tasha Eggleton is incredibly multidisciplinary in her practice but self-identifies as a crafter and model-maker. She has acquired a diverse range of crafting techniques during her time at Kingston including embroidery and plaster casting, although needle felting is amongst her favourites for creating her models.
A key theme in her practice is the creation of creatures as she frequently turns to nature as a source of inspiration. This involves much character design, yet she has dipped her toes into set design as demonstrated by her latest project Conjuring Up a Nightmare. This being a materialised depiction of ‘The Wolf Man’s Dream’, one of the most famous dreams in the history of psychoanalysis.
She is gradually shifting these skills in 3D to the realm of animation, as shown by her short film The Dance of the Parotia.
I take pride in my crafted creations
