Soft Illustration

Soft Illustration

My work is primarily textiles, im interested in textures and colour, I see myself as a painter with fabric. I love finding fabric with traces of human use and age for example stains or rips and using these bits of history to make something i hope other people find beautiful and or interesting. I am trying to work in a more documentary style, blurring the boundaries between illustration and photography and at the same time crossing the path of craft. I want my work to have the directness of a photograph whilst expressing my emotional involvement with subject matter through my labour intensive practice. The works i have submitted are two portraits, they depict people who are struggling with mental heath problems finding the reality of life difficult and arguing with ones mind, this is a personal project.
