Lucy Sherston finds that one of the best things about being an artist and illustrator is the constant learning and development you get to experience. She sees the process like a walk through a dense forest, she tells It’s Nice That, where “each job allows [me] to cut through the overgrowth and see [my] direction more clearly, but the path is never completely clear, which can be frustrating but ultimately exciting.”
She lives in Brighton, U.K., and most of her work is in the editorial sphere. The art she makes on her own time tends to leave out some parts of the composition, as she wants the viewers to be able to interpret it in their own way. “I’ve created a process of building up one image and then looking at the parts I can take away which gives my work more balance, and I hope this allows the viewer to fill in the gaps,” Sherston adds.
