Lauren Hoey

statement

As an Illustrator and Maker, I position my practice within the realm of storytelling. Surrounded by ideals of perfection, my interest lies in the feelings of inadequacy and self doubt; resulting in fantasies of escape and evolution to compensate.

Using a variety of mixed media and textile techniques, I explore imagined narratives and hybrid creatures through my love of the natural world. Found materials, man-made and organic, are what I seek to build my techniques upon. All things whimsical, organic and ethereal inspire my varying outcomes; most times influenced by the display of 18th Century, Cabinets of Curiosity.
