Art Exhibition: An Alphabet of Animals by Daisy Courtauld.

Daisy Courtauld

 an exhibition of Letter Stamp Illustrations

Daisy Courtauld is a portrait artist and illustrator. She studied Fine Art at Colchester Institute and has exhibited both in the UK and 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 hundreds, sometimes thousands, of tiny numbers or letters.

For this exhibition Red Lion Books are showing a selection of Daisy’s ‘Alphabet Animal’ illustrations celebrating the diversity of type, words and print.

Daisy’s stamp technique lends itself well to commission based artworks, using significant dates and initials to create bespoke pieces. Daisy has worked on various projects from portraits and wedding invitations for private clients to greeting cards and murals for charitable organisations. You can see an example of Daisy’s date stamp portraits in this exhibition.
