Episode #65: Phoebe Wahl

January 18th, 2016 · Comments

On today's episode we're talking about illustration with my guest, Phoebe Wahl. Phoebe Wahl is an illustrator whose vibrant work focuses on themes of comfort, nostalgia and connection to nature and one another. A kindergarten dropout, Phoebe complained that there "wasn't enough time to draw" in school. She spent the majority of her childhood running wild in Pacific Northwest backyards, before attending Rhode Island School of Design and graduating with a BFA in Illustration in 2913. Phoebe works in a variety of mediums, from watercolor and collage to fabric sculpture. An obsession with detail, pattern and texture is present throughout.
