Bedford College student’s artwork is out of this world


Bedford College student Eva Cringle has beaten 4,000 other entries to reach the final of the Space Foundation International Student Art Contest.

The German student who moved to the UK under the International Experience organisation saw off a global field for her work to be exhibited at the 35th Space Symposium and then Space Foundation World Headquarters and Discovery Center the Colorado.

The Year 1 Level 3 Fine Art student is building on her success at university in Hamburg to study games design.

“I love Bedford!” said Eva. “It is a beautiful place and the staff here at the college allow you to be a free spirit. I come from a small town of 5,000 people so Bedford is a smaller step then living in a huge city.”

Her can-do attitude has seen her win the chance to design an album cover for The Shtooks, a local band, and from that she has been commissioned to create another cover for a Danish/American band.

“It has been great experience to work closely with a client towards the finished result especially has I had only a few days to come up with the work,” said Eva.
