ILLUSTRATION: Belen Gomez

Découvrez Belen Gomez, une illustratrice/designer qui habite à Brighton, dans le Sud de l'Angleterre. Ses jolies illustrations se retrouvent en cartes postales ainsi que sur des tasses en porcelaine.

She said : «I studied ceramics at Camberwell School of Art and Crafts. On leaving college, I ran my own ceramic studio for ten very busy years, selling to high end stores and galleries. However, on taking an allotment in Brighton and exploring the Sussex countryside, I soon started to fill note books with pen drawings of vignettes and details that caught my eye. It wasn't long before I realised that they would make ideal pottery decorations.During my degree, we had made a week long visit to Stoke-On-Trent, the heart of England's pottery industry. The visit was a complete revelation. It has since been a long held wish to decorate Staffordshire bone china. The Rustic designs are my first collection, inspired by my pen drawings. I'm currently working on my second collection on the theme of the Seaside».
