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.
