I’m a little smitten by the works of Hannah Waldron, an illustrator from the UK who is currently experimenting with weaving, where she often explores the textures, patterns, forms and structures of her surroundings, and has an interest in the development of landscape over time.
I find that she has a personal pattern that peeks through in all her work – namely her love of lines and how she uses them to create visuals; and how natural it was for her to take her strengths and turn it into an art form through weaving as well.
I discovered her work through the latest issue of Wrap (one of my favorite magazines out there on illustration and creative culture), and I’d like to share a quote with you from her feature in the magazine:
