Mixed Media by Rhian Wyn Harrison
Parliament of Owls
Rhian is an artist and illustrator who works from her home studio in Paignton on the South Devon coast. In a previous life she was a graphic designer and typographer.
On reaching the hilarious age of 50, she realised that she had neglected her childhood love of drawing, painting and colour, so began to experiment, finding her artist voice and her own quirky style.
Mixed media work inspired by the background of vintage Times 1882... London and Parliament, which lead to the collective noun for a group of owls! Featuring barn, long eared and little owls, they have been created in ink, inktense, gouache and soft pastel, with a little witty hand stamped lettering echoing the call out at the House of Commons. Created during general election fever 2017.
