B&W Sketchbook (Raymond's Fire).jpeg

 

Izzy Smithson is an illustrator and artist, whose work explores colour, shape and line, to explore society and life around her. 

Her practice relies on drawing on experiencing environments and documenting relationships between the mundane and the dynamic, the expansive and the labyrinthine and suburban monotones with metropolitan technicolor.
