Kate Wilson Illustrations
I love photography, but find some of what I see much more interesting, almost poetic, when translated into an illustration. There's something about the combination of paper, graphite, and watercolor that is very emotional, stimulating, it's this blending of life and elegance (like a beautiful woman or gorgeous shoes), then filtered through the eye, and now caught in time on paper. No movement, frozen, raw, serene.
When Kate Wilson wrote to me about her illustrative work, I knew I had to share it because it's exactly what I love - not too fussy, almost dreamlike, soothing, and very mature. Kate, a final year illustration student at the London College of Fashion, just completed a project based around the mundane things in life that bring her joy. Inspired by the natural world around her, as well as antiques, fashion (of course), food, and her own quirky sense of humor, her illustrations show depth, a sense of self, and a definite style that is uniquely Kate. Here's some of her illustrations framed on a wall... So haphazard, I can't help but like it.
You can view her portfolio here on her website, where you can also inquire about purchasing.
