Billie Blue (she/her) works in the mediums of watercolour, ink, graphite, and oil paint to create representational artwork with an illustrative style. While focusing on detail and applying mediums in a sensitive fashion, she includes what some have called a “signature touch of humour” to her work. Her subjects include both human and animal forms, often isolated in settings that help to communicate specific narratives. Her narratives often involve juxtaposing historical paintings of women with contemporary society or revolve around the independency of the figures depicted. These narratives are either planned prior to creating the work or revealed when the work is in progress. She explores the concepts of societal stereotypes, the ubiquity of popular culture, social justice, and reinterpretation. Although she is intent on describing the story behind each artwork she creates, Billie invites her audience to have their own views, thoughts and discussions about what the work might express.
