Not gonna lie, I miss studying art. Although I absolutely love my uni course and it's as creative as you can get, I miss the traditional way of being given a project title, taking photos and filling endless sketchbooks of experimenting. To fill the A-Level Art gap in my heart, Pinterest introduced me to the work of Laura Redburn - a mixed media illustrator living in Cardiff. Her work is inspired by dreams and imagination as she mixes photographs, pattern and colour with gentle illustration. It's wicked. Such a refreshing, modern look at mixed media and I love all the block colours. Working with Free People, Frankie Magazine, Elle and Laura Ashley in the past, she's also done some lovely hand painted all over prints too. I love it and it makes me wish I had the time get back into mixed media/collage work.
Speaking of uni and art, would anyone find it handy/interesting if I did a post about it so far? Whatcha thinking?
