Our Talented Artists
Ella is a very talented 23 year old artists from SW London. She is studying environmental science and art at university in the US.
What Ella says
"I didn’t do art from the age of 14 to 22 as I was told in school that only those who were traditionally “good” at drawing/painting could do it. But really I think anyone can make art. I don’t really believe in such a thing as 'bad art' which I was made to think growing up and is why I gave it up. Even though I am minoring in studio art at university, it’s really just a hobby and a time for me to relieve stress. Taking classes in the art department makes me think in a different way to my other classes, mainly natural sciences, which I think is refreshing in such a cut-throat academic environment."
Flo is a Fine Art and History of Art student at the University of Leeds and is based in SE London and Leeds. Her artwork ranges from digital drawing to photography to creative poetry. You can see more of this on her Instagram @justgowiththefloah.
What Flo says:
"With my digital drawings I aim to distil forms down to their key lines, colours and shapes. It’s centred around finding the balance between reduction and recognition, so my work is crisp and graphic but also captures the essence of the subject. It’s a discipline which makes you evaluate before 'taking a line for a walk'.
Contrastingly, in my photographic work I enjoy concealing the subject; subverting the familiar to make it strange and extraordinary. Images of mould, flaking paint and everyday detritus are manipulated to beyond recognition; creating intricate and visual patterns."

What Holly says:
"Ever since I first began my degree at CSM, the university has been my main source of inspiration. Being surrounded by so many creative people who have no boundaries when it comes to the way they dress, behave and of course the work they produce made me realise that being a creative has no limits. When it comes to illustration, Londoners are simply my influence, and a lot of my drawings come from everyday situations - portrayed in my own style of course."
