I wanted to finally share my news about a new project. I am now a regular contributor for Dorset Magazine!
I will be illustrating the monthly article 'Return of the Native', written by the lovely Adam Lee. My approach and style may change as I am only just bedding into the role but as this is my first regular job as an editorial illustrator, I am excited to see how the relationship develops with the team and to see what other opportunities the partnership might bring.
Legendeer is dedicated to embedding artists back into the world. They design tools and programs to facilitate creative pioneers in pursuit of authenticity and cultural impact across a broad range of mediums.
In the spring of 2017 I travelled to Zion National Park in Utah to join the Legendeer programme for a week.
During the programme, participants of Legendeer Zion sat for Portrait sessions. Photographer and artist Mahting Putelis explored our growth as artists and delved into conversations surrounding community, creation, empowerment, humility, and more.
This series of Portraits was exhibited in Denver, CO. in November 2017, along with original art created by the artists. The art created was sold at silent auction as contribution to the 2019 Legendeer Scholarship Fund. I am pleased to say that I sent two pieces which were both sold on the night of the preview to an American collector.
I work full time for the National Trust and love to draw outside and printmake in my spare time. I love nature, landscape and adventure be it big or small. This is a way of sharing my news about work, events and celebrations!
