I studied Fashion for 20 years including 9 years living and working as a Fashion Designer / Illustrator in London. During this time I had my own clothing brand called ‘Slush’ which sold internationally. I swapped Hackney for Shropshire, now living in Shrewsbury I work as an illustrator / graphic designer having completed an MA in Illustration at Manchester School of Art. I have recently launched my own brand called ‘Cherie did this’ http://www.cheriedidthis.com.
I like to sketch ‘on the spot’ and was a finalist in The Moleskine Reportager Award 2015. I enjoy ferreting out interesting coffee houses, cafes and tea rooms in search of everyday life and to do a little people watching ! The sketches are combined with a hint of photographic detail to convey the reality of the venue, giving you a glimpse of what it was like to be there in that moment. The drawings are layered over time and you will often notice extra arms or legs as movement is captured.
