This week’s student of the week is Josie Stevenson. Dealing with subtle subjects through various methods such as printmaking, drawing, and painting, Josie’s works tend to be on the edge of Fine arts and illustration.

Thematically, I’m drawn to such motifs as voyeurism, preservation and documentation. In approaching my work, my concern typically lies in conveying a sentiment or mood rather than a concrete narrative. Abstracted, textured and patterned elements all figure heavily in my illustrations. I typically work in ink, watercolor, gouache and acrylic although recently I’ve been getting into bookmaking as well.
