Statement

Izzie studied Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art.  Shortly after graduating she founded Lazy Eye, working with film and video, creating and designing live shows and directing promos for bands including Death In Vegas and Beth Orton.

Izzie continues to work with moving image for clients including Topshop, Topman and Calvin Klein.

She began working as an illustrator in 2001 when she founded Hey Ladies fanzine with a group of female friends. Working within the parameters of this black and white fanzine she developed her distinctive pen and ink style, embracing colour, collage and digital media as her commercial commissions grew.

Influenced by fairy tales, traditional folk illustrations, Vanitas paintings, psychedelic poster art, experimental film and surrealism she continues to explore different techniques and evolve her style.

Her work appears in many books including 'Hand To Eye' (Laurence King Publishing), a book on contemporary illustration, and it's follow up 'The Picture Book'.

Izzie's work has been exhibited in London, New York , Melbourne, and Toronto.

She has lead workshops at the V&A and London College of Communication and given talks  at Chelsea College of Art, Middlesex University, Epsom University of Creative Arts and Northwest College of Art.
