A lover of monochrome, Eska creates gothic worlds through printmaking and illustration. Her darkly humorous work depicts noir-esque curiosities, driven by a fascination for ephemera and antique objects. Each piece is unique and handmade in her Bristol studio. Her recent series of work, 'Matchbox', is made up of sculptural drypoint etchings, exploring the themes of grief, loss, fate and fortune.
