About: Saskia Pomeroy graduated from Glasgow school of art in 2007. Saskia Pomeroy lives and works in London as a visual artist and freelance designer previously having worked for two years as a commercial screen printer at London print house k2 screen. Saskia ia a multidisciplinary artist working within print, drawing, sculpture and textiles. Saskia's work explores the relationships within compositions of colour, texture and shapes, sometimes abstract, sometimes observational. Her work is bright, colourful and joyous. Saskia's time as a screen printer has directly informed her style. She frequently uses contrasting finishes, colour overlays and technical detail as an additional dimension to her print work. This is also true to her painting work although more illustrative, is often an abstraction of real forms and themes such as nature, ancient art, glyphs and symbols.

I found that Saskia Pomeroy has a very clear style throughout her work. She tends to combine different mediums such as painting and sculpture, yet her geometric shapes are easily recognisable across platforms. Pomeroy is also able to reuse colours, shapes and patterns throughout her different pieces yet utilise them in a way that makes them different from the previous piece. Her playful illustrated shapes and patterns as well as the joyful pastels all compliment eachother perfectly.
