Edinburgh-based artist and designer Lorna Brown produces her original and evocative mixed media artwork using a variety of techniques and materials. Combining collage, paint, pen and ink and stencilling allows her to experiment with and respond to the materials as they are used. With a First Class honours degree in Design, textiles and surface design are important elements of her work. Images and materials are taken from nature, graphic packaging, statues, posters, graffiti, textiles and jewellery, and seemingly unconnected images are imaginatively brought together. Lorna adds; I work quite spontaneously and allow the materials and combinations of imagery to develop and unfold as I go. Screen printing allows me to work quickly and on a few different pieces at one time. Over printing gives the work a feeling of depth, layers and a history of seen and unseen images"."
