Esme makes work which explores the physicality of life through drawings and prints based on hair – a subject with qualities at once human and ‘other’. She currently uses her photographs as grounds on which to draw and enjoys trying to get the two elements, digital image and handmade marks, to co-exist and together make something new. Esme has exhibited nationally and internationally and shown in numerous Open Exhibitions including the Royal Academy. She has work in Public and Private Collections; is a member of BV Studios and a sometime member of Spike Print, Bristol.
