I will make magic by KatePowellArt
I will make magic
New piece, "I will make magic". Since starting my foundation year I’ve been thinking about all the different media I can use in my art, so here as well as pencil I’ve used string, wax and photoshop. I’m trying to stay positive about my art and I'm encouraging myself by thinking about how I could do ANYTHING with my hands, there are endless possibilities and that makes me feel free. It’s just an experiment so it’s a bit patchy but I’m happy to be doing something a bit different!

Natural Girl by KatePowellArt
Natural Girl

Here’s my latest drawing, "Natural Girl" - I’ve had this idea for a while and I’m happy to have finally drawn it. I just wanted to make the point that body hair is as natural as the hair on our heads, and although it’s okay to find body hair unattractive, it is NOT okay to shame or shun people, or respond publicly with “eww” just because somebody doesn’t shave. I have so many strong feelings about this! I feel angry that it’s such a big deal when women don’t shave and that women are called unattractive, disgusting, etc when they have hairy underarms just because most of western society has been conditioned to believe that women are gross unless they’re as hairless as a prepubescent child. I don’t think hairy people are superior to people who shave, because shaving makes a lot of people feel better about their appearance and feeling good about yourself is so important, I just think people of all genders should have the right to leave their bodies in their natural state without being embarrassed or called out by thoughtless, unkind people. IT’S JUST HAIR.

Drawn with agreement from original photo titled ‘Charlie Barker’ by Ben Hopper from his project “Natural Beauty”.

Mountains Beyond Mountains
Drawing commissioned by an upcoming Sheffield band called The Rubber Sound Experiment for their yet-to-be-released EP. This was so fun to draw. I left it a bit 'rough' looking because I thought it suited it

"Kate Louise Powell is a 19 year old amateur artist from West Yorkshire, UK, currently studying Foundation diploma in Art & Design at Leeds College of Art. After drawing recreationally her whole life, Kate started to take her artistic career more seriously in 2012 and produced a number of popular illustrations with the reoccurring motifs of flowers and butterflies. Since then she has experimented with photography, mixed media, and paint, but still works mostly in pencil, although she now aims to create more personal and emotive portraits. Kate seeks to produce work that is a greater expression of herself whilst continuing to include the theme of nature and questions of beauty. By 2015 she hopes to be attending a BA/BFA course at university and then wishes to pursue a career in fine art and/or illustration.”

In 2011 I started to take drawing more seriously. I have loved nature all my life, it is the backbone of everything, it is beautiful and horrible, and it is incorporated into most of my drawings and paintings. I like to embellish portraits and figures with elements of nature to combine ‘human’ and ‘natural’ beauty, and I also like to use nature to express more personal and emotional ideas. Butterflies are a regular occurrence, my awareness of and involvement in The Butterfly Project has meant that they have come to represent quiet emblems of hope. As art is slowly becoming a bigger part of my life, my work is growing more personal and closer to my heart. When it comes down to art, what motivates me most of all is the blankness of the page in front of me which cries out with so much possibility. I look at the blank sheet in front of me and know that I can do anything. I am free, there are no rules. To this day, art is shaping who I am. It is bringing me new opportunities, allowing me to meet fantastic people, and constantly giving me hope. If I didn’t draw I’d curl up and die.
