TANYA LING

 
I came across these illustrations by Tanya Ling in Vogue's newsletter.
 
Ling studied Fashion Design and Textiles at Central St Martins  and after graduating moved to Paris in 1989 to work as a designer for Dorothee Bis and then Christian Lacroix.
She then went on to set up a contemporary art project in London with her husband and produced her first exhibition of drawings in 1996 at Gavin Turk's Charing Cross Road studio. This lead to her first commission for British Vogue. Since then she has contributed to leading fashion publications all over the world.
 
Her work is very spontaneous and free.She uses a variety of mixed media inclusing ink, watercolour, pen and even nail varnish in some pieces.
