Eloise Humphrey

Statement

As an illustrator, I am motivated to create work that comments on current issues and affairs. I am particularly passionate about environmental issues, and my work often reflects this, whether it be singular editorial images illustrating the latest issues or longer narrative pieces. My work is often narrative-based, and I enjoy creating silent narratives and exploring how I can use individual images to illustrate entire stories.

My work is created with both analogue and digital processes. This combination allows me to create work with the softer textures of pencil and print whilst producing work quickly. I am very much inspired by the screen printing process, and this means my work often has a ‘printerly’ quality, a limited colour palette and bold, simple shapes. Pattern also inspires me, and I employ repeated shapes to create depth and texture in my work.
