James Parrett Sculptor, Self-employed
Bachelor of Fine Art 1998

I love that I get to work doing something that I am passionate about. There is nothing better than making new sculptures, learning new techniques and skills, and growing as an artist. I love that it is a constantly evolving process.

My time at Monash gave me self-confidence and helped me develop the technical skills I needed. I also got to learn how to act like a professional artist from Monash lecturers – some of the most highly regarded sculptors in Australia. I graduated knowing that I could make my own way in the art world and I’ve since become a successful self-employed artist, with my works installed in locations around the country.
