Avril and I have something in common in that we both work in offices during the day but once 17:30 comes around, we do something very different with our time. By night, Avril is an artist. And the term 'artist' is a serious understatement.
We had ranted, giggled and spoken in hushed voices about our alter-egos and alter-artists on many occasions, but on one particular occasion quite recently Avril confided some pretty big news to me. "Last weekend an RTE NationWide film crew came over, filmed me and my artwork and I'm going to be on TV", she said with a slight look of excitement and multiple shades of panic in her eyes. After we finished freaking out, Avril told me she was told she'd need a website among other things before her debut. Eventually, I quite awkwardly piped up, "Well, I can make you a thing if you want?" So I made her a website.
It was great to work with Avril because she had a clear idea of what she wanted incorporated into her site. We added a few bells and whistles, but ultimately her website stayed clean and simple so not to detract or distract from her amazing perspex artwork.
For more information on Avril's unreal artwork, check out her new website, Avril Hutch Acrylic Art here! She is one crazy talented gal.
And of course, tune in to tonight's NationWide [19:00 on RTE One] to see Avril's interview and the history behind her art. Or check
back here later, where I'm hoping to include a little snippet after it airs it out here! Best of luck Avril, and bottoms uuuuuuup! :D xx A
