Phyllis Lau – Visualisation

Currently in the first year of a Textile Design course at Central Saint Martins, I use drawings as a starting point for my research. In my work, I often draw inspiration from urban landscapes, home interiors and nature. Being a very tactile person, I love the hand drawn process and enjoy using different mediums such as pencil, pen, watercolour and oil pastels.

I believe in the transformative power of illustration, as it communicates a sense of style and emotion that we do not get from photographs. Using loose lines and a light hand, I try to create a light-hearted, minimal and contemporary visual style. In my free time, I enjoy viewing a range of illustrations from the provocative Egon Schiele to those by children’s book illustrator Oliver Jeffers.
