About Tugba Kop:

Howdy! I am a BA (Hons) Illustration graduate from Kingston University. You can find me and my sewing machine in the outer suburbs of London.
My work is very textile based, but everything starts with the good old fashioned pencil and paper! Observational drawing is at the foundation of everything I do. I particularly enjoy drawing people and reportage work.
The textile element of my work comes from having parents working in the textile industry as I was growing up. This meant that I had access to an industrial sewing machine, and bag fulls of unwanted fabrics and haberdashery to experiment with. I eventually combined my sewing abilities with my passion for drawing and this is what happened! My work plays on the boundaries between art and craft.
