August 2017 – Daisy Courtauld

Daisy Courtauld is a portrait artist and illustrator, based in Essex. She studied Fine Art at the Colchester School of Art and Design and has since exhibited both in the UK as well as internationally.

During her degree, Daisy developed a unique method of working with type, and date stamps, repetitively stamped, to gradually build and form an image according to tone. The end result is a detailed ‘drawing’ made up of thousands of tiny numbers or letters.
For this exhibition Daisy has brought together a selection from her alphabet collection of animal illustrations. Each animal is made up various sizes of stamped type. All are available as limited edition prints.
The stamp technique lends itself well to commission based artworks, using significant dates and initials to create bespoke pieces. As such, Daisy has worked on various projects from portraits and wedding invitations for private clients to greeting cards and murals for organisations.
