After meeting Mark as a volunteer on our Fallen 9000 project in 2003, our paths crossed again when we moved our studio to Mytholmroyd. Mark joined the team, working as a freelance member helping in the studio and on events. He is also a volunteer for Mountain Rescue in the Calder Valley.
It all started with a simple “Hello" to a fellow making a sand sculpture, followed by a definite “Yes" when he offered me the opportunity to have a go. Fast forward a few years and I am now joined by a wonderful team of enthusiastic and hardworking creatives based in West Yorkshire, some of whom you can meet below. We also have an amazingly talented team of freelance artists, sculptors and workshop experts who join us on larger events and busy periods.

As well as a member of our Sand In Your Eye family, dealing with new enquiries, digital and creative, Liz also is a freelance illustrator based in Hebden Bridge.
I am a mixed bag with a dose of art, a sprinkle of theatre and an education in Environmental Sciences. I have always tried to do things that bring enjoyment, as I believe if you do, then there is a real chance you will be successful and fulfilled.
All the details sort themselves out in the end and great things happen if you just have a go. This led me to working in ice hotels and international sand sculpture festivals across the globe. When I started making sand art in the UK, Sand In Your Eye was born. I am now joined by a small team that extends to a big family of lovely folk on our larger projects. I count myself to be a very fortunate sand and ice sculptor. Click here to read about how I became a sculptor.
Jamie introduced me to the wonderful world of Sand In Your Eye around 9 years ago, where I was lucky enough to learn sand art. I was so taken with it I decided to leave my full time job in design and a follow a career as a sculptor and land artist. You can find me either on a beach, playing in the sand or in our studio chatting to customers and collaborators. No day is ever the same and I love it!
