Earlier this year, I created a hand-drawn postcard-sized piece for Beyond Borders, an exhibition and wider event series by The GAP Arts Project. All artworks were put up for sale to raise money to support young refugees and asylum seekers within the city of Birmingham, and this cause was my reason for submitting a work, as well as proudly exhibiting alongside my creative buddy Shaheen Kasmani.
Of all the blogs, in all the internet, in all the world, you walk into mine.
I'm Louise Byng: a freelance illustrator, designer & wordsmith based in Birmingham, UK.
Here you will find a creative account of my illustrated life with a shifting emphasis on WORK, REST and PLAY; encouraging professional development, experimentation and wellbeing as key components of creative practice.
