Born in the North East of England artist Alyn Mulholland grew up in Nottinghamshire, where he is currently based. Alyn originally trained as a mining engineer and spent his early career working underground in the coal mining industry. Following the closure of many of England’s coal mines in 1993 he began a new career as an artist, studying Fine Art (Sculpture) at Loughborough University, graduating in 1999 with a first class BA (Honours).

Since that time his work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. He has completed a number of successful artist in residence positions including Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland, Canada, Benenden school in Kent, UK and Scalloway, Shetland. Alyn has sited a number of public artworks including large commission at Rothley Lodge, Leicestershire (which won a design award) and at Logic Park near Hinckley.
