Imogen Slater


Says U.K.-based illustrator Imogen Slater on her work: "My first published illustration was a streaky black tree in felt tip, aged 11; that printed page, or the £5 book voucher prize, convinced me I could do nothing else. I had to forgo art college though to study at Cambridge—no Fine Art course there—and then onto Italy, to cling onto any skills in coffee, leaning and ice cream I have inherited from that side of my family. Back in the U.K. and some bad typing jobs later, I spontaneously designed myself a website which led to work painting interiors of bars and boardrooms, and artwork for Apple and Marie Claire. Hopefully it will also allow me to pursue an eternal aim—combining my obsessions of paper, scissors, and rock." It reminds us a little of the illustration work of Steven Wilson.
