Blackpool Pleasure Beach
Model Maker / Artist, Blackpool Pleasure Beach
Mar '03 - May '05
This was my first full-time art based job after leaving University where I worked on a wide variety of projects.
I designed and created sculptures for rides on the Beaver Creek Kids Park such as a Bradley Beaver model for the monorail and a Bradley Beaver wing-walker model for the kids helicopter ride. I also created displays in other rides such as the Ghost Train, the Alice in Wonderland ride, the River Caves ride and the Pleasure Beach Express.
My work involved using a wide variety of materials including 2 part foam, fibreglass, wood, fabric, rubber, latex, wax and a range of paints.
I also decorated shops and restaurants within the park with murals and sculptures. These paintings and sculptures were mostly designed by myself, working within design briefs.
Although I enjoyed my work at the Pleasure Beach, I left in 2005 to work at Blackpool Illuminations doing similar work for more money.
