Working largely with printed and painted textile patterns, paper cut surfaces and abstract shapes, London-based Saskia Pomeroy’s practice is a playful and applicable creative kit of parts for illustration, fashion and design. All at once dynamic and still life, her compositions are built with reduced forms that work their way into seamlessly aesthetic groupings on the page and very successful collaborations in the real world. With a lovely body of work behind her and a recent exhibition under her belt, we asked thought her a great choice for an Introducing… feature.
Where do you work?
I work for Topmam as a freelance print designer three days a week, the rest of the time I work from home.
How does your working day start?
My working day usually begins with a strong coffee and breakfast, otherwise I can’t concentrate!
How do you work and how has that changed?
I work normally by sketching out ideas for commercial work, then either scanning or drawing directly into Illustrator. For more creative art work I tend to stick to more traditional mediums, such as painting and collage, then I might transfer that into digital format for screen print.
Where would we find you when you’re not at work?
If I’m not at work then I might be found at K2 Screen or London Screen Studio in Bermondsey.
Would you intern for yourself?
I can be quite bossy my friends tell me! But I would definitely intern for myself I think it would be fun!
