PHIL OGDEN   [Designer]

Profile -'about the artist'

“Sow it!  Grow it!  Dry it!  Draw it!” is my motto.  I am particularly interested in the natural life-cycle of plants. And, living where I do allows me to indulge in my love of both horticulture and botanical art & design.

As well as digital design, I also work a lot with charcoal and pastels due to its spontaneity and ultimate sensitivity. I am able to draw on (no pun intended) many of the very same methods I learned in my career as the founder and Creative Director of London based design company, First Image.
