Artists represented at Jessica's House
Lucy Hobbs is an Illustrator and Designer. She is also a self confessed collectahollic who rummages daily through her hoards of treasure to find inspiration for new artworks. Her artworks grow from items such as victorian postcards, vintage cigarette cards, beer labels, beach flags, songs and music sheets, old beads and broaches, shells and stones, buttons, kids scribbles, cards, old maps, books and exercise books, luggage labels, betting slips, fabric scraps, ribbon and clothes labels.
She takes a very layered approach when creating her illustration work, she has always found starting with a blank piece of paper difficult so will apply textures to a base by sticking stickers, painting paint and sewing patterned paper together. Making this her canvas she will then use images, objects, scanned textures, photos and digital illustrations to create the final image. All of these elements are combined together digitally which gives Lucy the change to play with the layout of her images, enhance elements and duplicate marks to create patterning.
Lucy graduated in 2002 from The Surrey Institute of Art and Design with a Graphic Design degree. As an artist she has completed a number of artworks for organisations such as Art for Life, at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton and in schools working with pupils on various art projects.
