Four up and coming art students at University College Isle of Man have been awarded the inaugural KPMG Fayle Awards.

Given in commemoration of former KPMG Managing Director Mike Fayle, who was a keen admirer of the arts, the students were nominated by tutors at UCM and each received £500 towards furthering their studies.

Singer songwriter Alice Dudley won her award for innovation with striking multi-media visual representations of her own music and lyrics. Ellie Byrne picked up an award for determination, ambition and hard work for her textile project inspired by nature, including the use of some vibrant dyes made from locally sourced flowers, vegetables and minerals. Nadia Derkozlieva was recognised for her skill in digital manipulation and professionalism, in particular for her 3D modelling in a horror game trailer based on the Picture of Dorian Gray. The fourth award went to Kherree Goldie for her consistent progress and her photographic portraiture of local characters and the environment. All four students will go on to study for degrees in art-related subjects next year.

Congratulating the students on their success KPMG Director Greg Jones said: “Mike was a pillar of the arts community and we wanted to do something to commemorate him in an appropriate way. The idea of supporting an arts student was suggested and, after discussions with the college, we decided to split this into four awards to acknowledge and support in a small way the diverse range of talent here on the Island.  

“It has been fascinating to learn about the motivation and inspiration behind the students’ work and the approaches they have taken. I think Mike would be very pleased and proud to be associated with these awards and we look forward to seeing how this year’s winners develop and progress in the coming years.”

Head of Art, Design & Media at UCM, Helen Fox, added: “We are extremely grateful to KPMG for recognizing the work of our students in this way. Winning the awards will make a wonderful addition to their CVs and I know that all the students will appreciate the valuable financial assistance as they continue to explore their individual creative paths.”
