Illustrator Research #30- Sarah Beetson

Sarah Beetson is a graduate of Falmouth College of Arts in Cornwall, UK. Her recent published work includes illustration for The Oxo Book, and in 2001 Sarah placed first in the Pentland Prize for Fine Art. She works in mixed media generating ideas on paper and finals on wood at varying scales.  Using photographs at starting point, her paintings combine brightly colored lines with gouache, acrylic, and spray paint.  Some of her applied elements include tissue paper, sticky dots, and sequins.

Her clients in the past have Ford, Julien Macdonald, ChildLine, and Stella McCartney.

I enjoy the use of mixed media in these pieces, and the color use and texture techniques really add a specific style to this work.
