Etsy: Esme Bone

Esme Bone is an artist living in Cambridgeshire. I first met her this summer and think her work is absolutely beautiful and intriguing. She has a real knack for being able to place marks, shape and colour to create a composition that works. I really love the sense of fluidity within her work that is created through spontaneous mark making and repetition. This is something I try to influence within my work. Esme is starting at Falmouth University this September like me to do the BA Drawing course. I am looking forward to being able to work alongside someone who is interested in depicting mark in a similar way to me and I am also interested to see how her style develops. 

Esme says: "I like to create layers in my work, building up the textures and to juxtaposition varying components to compliment each other. I like the simplicity of breaking down a drawing into lines, colours and shapes and the relationships between them."

Below are some of my favourites from her online shop. I really recommend taking a look to see some of her stuff. I have taken a lot of inspiration from her use of colour and sense of layering. 

Esme has recently opened up an online shop on Etsy where you can buy some of her original work. 

Esme also has an Instagram account where she uploads new works! 

(This is my favourite piece Esme has for sale, so beautiful!!)

Phoebe Atkey is a talented artist whose work I first saw on Instagram. Her commitment and enthusiasm for the arts is very inspiring. Her detailed drawings and attention to detail is what makes her stand out. Phoebe currently has over 25,000 followers in Instagram where she often uploads work. I interviewed Phoebe to gain more of an insight to her interests and how she creates such beautiful works using a variety of media.

How often do you draw? 
I try to draw everyday, even if it is just 15 minutes. What artists influence you?  I have always been interested in children’s book illustrations especially those of Quentin Blake and Ernest Shepherd. These two artists inspired me to draw from a very young age. As I have got older, I have also become interested in the works of Saul Bass, Herbert Leupin and Paul Rand.
Do you see yourself going to Art School?  I would like to try getting into the industry without going to uni. However, I am lucky to live near an extremely good arts university, s…

Royal Drawing School Year Show - 2018/2019 review

Being content and tolerating uncertainty

It's been well over a year since my last blog post. I've been writing still just not in a consistent space. I've got a few pieces over at On the Beat Mag and on the Pressing Matters Journal. It's funny how I'm starting off by trying to show how I have been keeping busy, as a way of defining my offline presence on this space. This is something I have always been very good at maintaining, an image of being busy and content in what I am doing. I think with this keeping busy, comes a sense of running from oneself in order to keep my head above the water. In recent weeks I have been writing a lot more than I have been making art. I have had projects on the go, but not pushing myself fully into them which I find frustrating because I'm not being fully present in the moment of what I am doing. In this I perhaps lose the essence of why I am doing it.

When you are in a state of transition there are a few ways you can process? deal? tackle? it. I am someone who has alway…
