Acrylic Fluid creations is a company specialising in one-off contemporary art pieces, all handcrafted by Ursula McCormack. Nestled in the Ribble Valley, Ursula has a studio in the garden where she works on her unique art. It is amazing to be surrounded by nature and to work looking out over the Valley. Learn more about us below.
The studio is set up in a way that makes creating easy, without distraction. I create pieces from both acrylic and resin, depending on the client’s requirements.
Acrylic fluid creations have stock items available on the website, however, bespoke services also offer to individual clients and cooperate companies. Each piece that is made takes different stages, from design to the finished piece. Usually, acrylic pieces can be ready within 3 weeks. Resin takes slightly longer as the stages involved in creating resin pieces are a long process. It would usually take 6 – 8 weeks for a resin piece to cure ready for despatch depending on the size required.
It is possible to come and meet in person with the artist, by appointment only.
Ursula was born in Dublin in 1971, as a child, she loved art and spent most of her childhood drawing or painting. She had dreams of going to art college, but her path took a different direction. In 1992, she moved to Manchester and married; bringing up three children and pursuing a successful career in childcare. She went back to university as a mature student and secured an honours degree in psychology and had hoped to undertake her PhD.
Life takes us in different directions and when her mum became terminally ill Ursula gave up her PhD to travel between the UK and Ireland to care for her mum. Losing her beloved mum left a huge gap and Ursula turned to art to help fill the void in her life. In the summer of 2018, she began to research acrylic fluid art. Loving the idea that people see art differently, especially in respect of abstract art it opened a whole new way of creating.
Fluid acrylic art is a way of expressing the feelings inside of her and working with this medium to create unique artwork. She is inspired by nature and the glory of everyday colours and how colours mix and flow. No matter how many times you use the same colour pallet you can never recreate a piece. Moving on to try new techniques Ursula started to use resin as an art medium. The resin creates a multi-dimensional piece of art, though layering different colours.
Ursula recently hosted a highly successful exhibition at the Station Gallery in Clitheroe and is embarking on a major event at the Ideal Home Show next march. Her work can be seen in Homes and Gardens, Vogue and London Life magazines.
