I’ve always drawn from a very early age when my mother showed me how to hold a pencil.
But it was not until I entered Art School I have been able to organise my thoughts and
use different media to produce work.
Before starting Year 1 we were given a project a list of things from which to produce art. One of the items was rabbits and that started a rabbit fever which, like rabbits themselves, bred and bred until I was tagged “Rabbit Girl” because of the artwork I was rolling out.
My first bit of work about rabbits was a paper project which I did a disembowelled Rabbit.
The second was having my drawings put onto a silk screen and printed;
I got a little more abstract as the projects went along.
I started looking at the Artist David Shrigley – his style of Illustration was similar in type.
This inspired me helping me create a series of cooking posters about people who can’t cook;
This was my favourite design that I put on to a silk screen print.
