Hello! I’m Hazel, a recent Illustration graduate from ECA currently based in Midlothian.
My process is all about playing with materials, getting messy and learning as I go. I enjoy working with a range of mediums including printmaking, drawing and painting. Keeping sketchbooks and drawing outside is a big part of my practice as well as being a lovely record of memories. I am eagerly awaiting the day I can go back on drawing trips with my illo pals.
The piece I have created for The Student began as white paper cut silhouettes which I scanned in and added the details digitally. I hoped to create a colourful illustration which captured the charm of Edinburgh and the student experience.
When I’m not drawing, I love walking my greyhound Tiger and reading travel writing books.
Printed on 100% cotton material, Hazel’s tote bag creates a colourful impression of student life at Edinburgh.
