Previous portrait example by Rachel Oxley
A distinctive blend of found media and digital imagery.
Rachel Oxley’s work incorporates contemporary design techniques to create a strong, modern style. While the subjects of her portraits appear in a realistic style and are easily recognisable, Rachel thoughtfully strips down colour and form, resulting in her strong, graphic art pieces.
Rachel is an illustrator based in London, where she moved after having graduated from the Maidstone School of Art at the University of Kent. She creates her designs using a combination of found imagery and collage, a process she has developed further by working digitally
There are two core elements to Rachel Oxley’s process, and bringing them together is what gives her work it’s individual style.
The textures that Rachel adds into her portraits comes from her interest in the aesthetic of real surfaces. This used to mean an ever-growing collection of scraps of paper that was threatening to take over her studio. Luckily, she now only keeps a digital store, which has helped work towards having a paperless studio.
The other part of her work involves bringing in photographic elements that she then works into her illustrations. This in then combined with strong, clean drawings to complete the overall look.
