INFLUENTIAL ARTIST: LINDA KITSON

Updated: Apr 30

I discovered Linda Kitson through a fellow University colleague who immediately cited her Falkland War illustrations upon seeing some of my more ‘raw’ sketches. I do love working at speed, with energy and purpose because I think that energy shows through in the final piece. This is a little bit of a new mindset for me, being used to producing quite tight, calculated, methodical and figuratively real images. Seeing work from the likes of Kitson gives a better understanding that there is plenty of room for creating fantastic finished pieces in a very short time and without exact figurative accuracy.
