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!!)
