These illustrations hinge on the belief that a 'picture is worth a thousand words'. Each image captures a moment in time through the artist's use of delicate lines and a balanced colour palette, to tackle what are often very weighty themes. Pattern design and symbolism are key elements of the work because they too communicate a part of the message being shared. Each image begins as a 2d manual drawing and ends as a digital illustration.

Ciara Chapman

I'm an artist and illustrator living in an unusual situation in that I have spent the past 4 and a half years recovering from an accident. I'm still a long way off recovery so I am housebound reaching out and connecting with the world through my art. Art has saved me from an inevitable depression, it's something I can still do and I feel I do it well. Art has given me the opportunity to look back at the past 4 years and see a portfolio of hundreds and hundreds of illustrations instead of seeing a hollow and wasted portion of my life.
