Illustration and textiles alumni speaking about their creative careers
Two former illustration and textiles students of The Northern School of Art are speaking about their careers since graduating, at free online events on Wednesday 28 April.
Her biography states: ‘After graduating, Lizzie worked with a variety of clients on both local community-based and heritage-based projects. Their illustration work with Changing Relations, on the US TOO educational book and exhibition, cemented Lizzie’s signature creative process of hearing local people’s stories and translating them into visual and audio work.
“As Artist-In-Residence at Durham Sixth Form Centre, Lizzie was able to fully realise their methods and engage with the incredible local people in the County Durham area for a solo exhibition.’

About The Northern School of Art’s Creative Careers series:
The schedule of talks covers a range of disciplines and they are delivered by industry speakers, creative lecturers and graduates from across the whole creative sector.
These sessions can serve as a useful resource for schools and colleges (or anyone with an interest in creative development and progression). Usually lasting around 45 minutes, they take place on a Wednesday afternoon.
Participants can log in remotely via a Microsoft Teams link, which will be sent to anyone that books a place through Eventbrite.
Our previous speakers have helped to inspire the next generation of creatives, sharing their own creative journey, insights into their practice, demonstrations of their work as well as providing general advice to anyone looking to follow a similar path.
