'Elyse Blackshaw’s mark making and illustrations are the consequence of an obsession with colour and texture, combined with an intrinsic interest in fashion.
A teacher of textiles and a fashion tutor, Elyse’s need to inspire others through visual imagery invites us to see fashion through her abstract interpretation.
Elyse creates her own imaginative ideas for fashion alongside representing the latest collections from the catwalk by embracing the colour, shape and texture of each garment. Her most current artwork has been for private commissioners and ELLE, Noctis and Fashion Revolution.
Her signature squiggle is what defines Elyse’s work.
Elyse gained her experience in the fashion industry by interning for designers who incorporate hand crafted designs, such as Zandra Rhodes, Kitty Joseph and Karolina York.'
