Edwina White is always armed with a pencil and makes sure to find old papers to make her drawing, collage, and painted images come to life. She tries to inject them with a wry sort of humour and harness an odd melancholy beauty besides.
Her work has been been published in Print Magazine, Creative Review UK, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Flaunt, Vogue Australia and Japan, Vanity Fair, Good Weekend, Food Illustrated UK, Viking Children’s Books and soon, Taschen's Best 100 Illustrators. Works are now in private collections worldwide, Missoni and Ballroom Marfa amongst them.
Right about now Edwina is working on a music video with Dear Georgiana, a breast feeding manual and a fashion illustration exhibition from her studio in Red Hook, above a dog biscuit factory and just around the corner from a smoked fish factory. Mmmmm...
