Again, thanks to Twitter, I discovered the lovely work of an illustrator from Leicester, Chloe Hall. I adore her work, especially that she adds embroidery on her illustrations. I thought it is very clever and bold thing to do.
Hey Chloe! Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Hello! My name is Chloe Hall, with help from De Montfort University’s Enterprise Inc scheme I have been able to do what I love and start a business as a freelance illustrator! I live in Leicester, and have recently turned my shed into a little studio to do all my drawing, making and tea drinking.
How did you become an artist?
I didn’t really have a set plan to become an artist, I studied graphic design & art at A Level, enjoyed it a lot so decided to carry it onto a foundation course, thats when I realised I really wanted to do art as a career and went onto complete a degree in Graphic Design & Illustration, which was really fun! I was then fortunate enough to get a place on the Enterprise Inc Scheme through De Montfort and I haven’t really stopped drawing since I finished uni!
How would you describe your art?
My art I would say is quite delicate, hand crafted and often humorous, I like adding textile elements into my work to give it more detail.
