This piece was inspired by the poetry event I attended. A lot of the poetry was around the theme of becoming a new mother and mother hood. All the poems had a real sincerity and positive inner glow about them that I could feel was so genuine. These poems didn't strike me as being about a particular message or fact, but more freely expressing this array of emotions felt in an abstract way. So I created the image in a similar way using this mix of swimming colours symbolising the flurry of emotions within this golden almost womb like bubble as if nothing outside this new relationship between mother and child exists. The brush strokes making up the mother flowing to and from the child, like the give and gain connection between mother and child.

Hi I'm Ellis Lewis-Dragstra, full time freelance illustration artist. The main commission work I get is creating album artworks for various musicians. Despite not always being aware of it, In my work I am interested in exploring the relations between art forms especially music. Having synaesthesia, music has always also felt like a visual artform to me too, and possible a bigger influence on my work then actual visual artforms. I am entirety self-taught and feel this has led me to pick up a lot of "bad" drawing habits which have developed into my own style.
In my own personal work, I try and embrace the freedom of not having any brief and create something that means a lot to me. Examples of past projects have been influenced by themes of Family, Nature, Dreams and the process of creating itself. No matter the theme I like to create visual representations of my thoughts, feelings and questions that encourage the viewer to use their own creativity by trying to puzzle together meaning and asking themselves the same questions instead of the artwork simply stating a fact to the viewer.
I'm Ellis Lewis-Dragstra, London based full time freelance illustration artist. I've drawn as long as I can remember and am completely self taught. In my work I like to blend together my interests from over the years like photography, water colour, paint, pencil drawing, collage and digital illustration. I love to combine elements of these mediums that I’ve tried out over the years, that I puzzle together as a kind of visual language made up of my past. And as Iv'e never been very good at talking, art has Inadvertently become something of a visual language to me, and a way of understanding the world and myself better. What I love about art, that I try and embrace in my own work is that it has as many meanings as there are people looking at it.
