As a graphic designer who's returned to drawing, tushkaillustrates, aka Chrissy, has been enjoying the opportunity to work with more traditional methods of creativity and step away from a computer for most of her work. Commissioned art work for a variety of magazines alongside some work to illustrate the lovely scents of a London candle shop, have given her professional illustration experience, but at the moment she's indulging an exploration of Nature and Nurture themes in her work.
Following a trip to Vancouver, her artwork found narrative from the curious and wonderful Nature focused first nation folk tales. Also, she is currently attempting to live her dream, and is therefore living in both London and Devon. The more regular closeness to the seaside and seeing the seasons change in the landscape that surround her new home is inspiring her work and continuing this focus on Nature.
Story telling also finds a voice in her Nurture series of Rorschach lies. The psychological profiling tests are shown to be truly misleading with the purposeful narratives and sometimes provocative images contained within each of the artworks.
Obsessed with details, the carefully drawn pencil or ink drawings are meticulously created on tracing paper, with layers for detail and colour. These drawings are then scanned and the layers of artwork assembled using the wonders of modern technology to give the majority of the prints that will be displayed. Some original pencil drawings will also be on show.
