Get to know Eleanor...

Birthday? 24 February 1996
When did you start doing artwork? 3 years ago this June just gone.
When and what and where did you first get published? When I was 13 one of my photographs was placed in a contest as highly commended run by National Geographic and Airbus. The photo was shown outside the UNESCO building in Paris, in the Canada Cultural Center for the Winter Olympics , Outside of the Retiro park in Spain and the 50th Hamburg Harbor festival, among many other places listed in a press release on the Airbus website.
Do you use reoccurring themes or images in your illustrations? Yes, often. Mainly around the theme of destruction is a strong emotion for me. Self defense, fragility of life and finite matters and emotions.
What media do you like to work in? Why? Photography but also mixed media. The use of natural objects in urban scenarios.

I like things to be out of place and for them to still seem composed. I enjoy most forms of art, I would like to work in a lot more mediums in the near future.
What artist's work do you most admire? How has this artist's work influenced you? There are so many other photographers I admire. I am constantly discovering more and more. I enjoy the work of National Geographic photographers like Reza and Joel Sartore. I would eventually like to take photographs that mark something of history, to leave a deep impression on peoples consciousness.

I like a lot of contemporary artists' works. I love the paintings of Graham Coxon. I myself would like to grasp the opportunity to do cover artwork in the near future. Especially as music greatly influences a lot of my images. I would say that is another theme if you look hard enough into my works so far.
