Neil Elliott is a multi-award-winning Perth hills-based sculptor and painter. His work is mixed media and created with a sense of humour. Neil draws his inspiration from history, engineering, his dreams and the many interesting objects found in his studio.

"Bluey the fly" was inspired by the 1970's clip on bedside light that I found.
I always thought that it would make a great set of eyes. A fly seemed to be the most suitable subject.
