Came across Oliver's work on Instagram the other day. I was struck at how he uses media in such a convincing way to create his emotive narrative pieces. He has a real eye for colour and story telling. 

Sophie Eliza Chadwick// Illustration Graduate - Recent work on the Wild Pony Shop in Falmouth Town. 

Sophie has been working on the new Wild Pony shop front in Falmouth Town, combining her visual language with colour has been a really great thing to see! Rice party 4 eva!

There is something very calming about the way Harry captures things. He is able to frame his subject in an intriguing way without losing a sense of what he trying to convey to the viewer. This is one of my favourite shots of his. The lighting in particular and colour is beautiful. 

Sophie Shaw// Graduate 

Sarah's work is truly stunning. I've not seen work in a long time that has actually moved me so much. I think it is her use of colour and sense of motion she creates with media. She's a real gooden!

Amy's beautiful wooden pots are so so unique. I love following her work because she is someone who works really hard at honing a traditional craft. Her combination of pattern and colour is what makes her pieces really striking!//

Artist Talks: Phoebe Atkey

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.

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.
