Artist Taz Gray spends her daily exercise walking around exploring and taking in the urban, industrial landspace where she lives in Upper Edmonton with her husband. Inspired by the 30s architectural heritage and the many green spaces in the borough, she started a series of drawings of lesser-known places spotted on her walks, reflecting the shadows and silhouettes she saw.
Before sketching, Taz uses photography to first capture forms, lines and structures that provoke a new way of looking.
When Taz isn't drawing, she works for the Royal College of Art and gets locals creating through Tottenham Art Classes in her free time. Prior to this, she worked for Sotheby's Institute of Art and ran a non-profit gallery in Islington.
