Elaine Eckford

"I work in illustration, telling stories through one image or a storybook. My drawings have an innocent, child like quality, although I tend to tell stories which have an underlying darkness or are obviously brutal, so that the juxtaposition of the two creates a sense of un-ease.

I mix old and new media, using computers, ink jet printers, photocopiers, Japanese book binding techniques and collage."

Elaine received a BA (Hons) in Visual Communication: Illustration at The Glasgow School of Art in 2007.
