Let's meet an artist!
Rachel Jones is an artist who lives and works in London. Her artworks are made with oil sticks and pastels that she blends together in different ways. She uses an entire rainbow of colours! Rachel shared some of her journey to becoming an artist with students from Chisenhale Primary School, check out some of their questions below:
CP: "Why is your art so abstract?"
RJ : "It's abstract because sometimes, I think its hard to talk about things in clear pictures and if somethings abstract, it can be interpreted in lots of different ways"
CP: "What inspired you to do pictures of mouths?"
RJ: "You feel alot of different things in your mouth, and your mouth is a point in your body where things go into it, and things come out, and there's lots of different sensations in your mouth, and textures"
