We asked Vicky to share her inspiration for her Botanical Gardens collage, here's what she had to say;
Like much of my artwork, I created the original piece for this design as a collage using a mixture of shop bought and hand painted pieces of paper. First I sketch out my design in pencil and work out a quick colour mock up in Photoshop. I then trace the pencil sketch onto tracing paper, flip it over and trace the different elements out onto paper. I then cut out each piece with a scalpel and assemble by hand before finally scanning into Photoshop and tweaking a little bit.
This is one of a series of illustrations I've created turning some of my favourite places in Sheffield into teapots. It came about partly for fun, but also partly to help me explore and get to know my new home city. As someone who grew up with trips to Kew Gardens and the parks in London, the Botanical Gardens instantly makes me feel relaxed and at home, which I hope comes across in this design.
