MicroExhibition Space is proud to exhibit the work of local artist Sammy Rule. She is a mixed media freelance illustrator currently based in Abingdon. She enjoys experimenting with all sorts of methods to create her work, often using a mix; such as traditional drawing with digital painting. Here she tells us more about her influences and artistic journey:
“As an artist, I am particularly interested in portraying atmosphere and surrealism through my work. I love ethereal or other-worldly themes, though am inspired by the world around me – I like to see the extraordinary in the most ordinary things. I have been in further education for art for 6 years, having graduated from the BA Illustration course at Arts University Bournemouth in June last year. Illustration has always been my passion; ever since I was very young I have been drawing little expressive, descriptive scenes and characters. I posses an active imagination, preferring to draw or paint based on what I picture in my head, rather than exclusively using references. Some of my most recent art series can be seen here in this exhibition: some examples from my 12 days of Christmas cards and my 1×1 inch watercolour paintings.”
Sammy is always happy to take commissions, or just chat about her work. You can find her posting regularly on Facebook and Instagram. You may also purchase her artwork on Etsy; including original paintings, cards, prints and more.
