DefinitelyJenny Loves: Faye Moorhouse

Hello everyone! So this DefinitelyJenny Loves shines the spotlight on illustrator Faye Moorhouse. Based in Brighton, Faye is a master of markmarking, especially with her ink/watercolur pieces. A lot of Moorhouse’s work often has undertones of the macabre, which suits the wire like lines and muted tones.

I love the way she creates people, little detail is used, often reduced to inky textures and simple shapes but still retaining a mystique and charm that keeps me looking. One of my favourite pieces is ‘The Cat Ladies of Czechoslovakia’, particularly the pages of the elderly ladies with the cats nestled inside of them. (Last image below.)

Please do check out her work as she does ceramics as well as more light hearted work. (I urge you to atleast check out her ‘Wonky Pet Portraits’!) That’s it for now, till next time…
