Rachael Clegg Artist South Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Everyone loves a story but especially me! And thus, stories - from major episodes in history to the minutiae in a stranger's life - inform my artwork. I create bold, striking - often surreal - imagery that each tell their own story.
I read, research, probe, prod until my mind become a cornucopia of facts and stories. Then comes the thinking...I think, think, think some more and eventually start to put these thoughts to paper. I then create a world my sketchpad - much like the way a film director creates his storyboard - and once I'm satisfied I'll put the rest in place - whether that's a painting, a photograph or a commission.
