Fiona Solley is an illustrator, designer, sewing enthusiast and teacher who sees colours, shapes and textures all around her. This has led to making patterns and creating stories through her illustrations. By combining delicate watercolours, bold colours and graphics and hand drawn illustrations, her work tells a unique story. Fiona has worked in many different educational settings, teaching secondary school students and adults to draw, paint and design. She loves to create to connect people through teaching and her art.
What is Your Story? Storytelling Through Creative Illustration
Through creative illustration techniques using collage, image transfer and fabric, participants will have the opportunity to be able to explore ‘their story’ by drawing, collaging and creating motifs. The final component to this process will be the creation and making of their illustration into a functional object such as something to wear or carry.
