There is certainly something very dreamy about illustrator Harriet Lee-Merrion’s work. Soaked in metaphors, her seemingly minimalist, but actually complex, mostly monochrome pieces are superbly crafted and marry delightful whimsy with thought-provoking oddities.
To all intents and purposes, her style is minimal. Her pieces often look unfinished and detail is sparse. But, owing to a heavy reliance on visual metaphors, Lee-Merrion’s work becomes complicated. No doubt inspired by Japanese literature and art, there is also a post-modern take on Frida Kahlo here, too.
