Mat Osmond

Job title
Lecturer, Illustration

Mat Osmond joined the MA course team in 2009, having worked in Fine Art teaching for ten years. Since himself completing the MA Authorial Practice in 2006, Mat has produced three books of authorial illustration, one of which, Drawing on Water, was published by Atlantic Press.

In 2009, with the publication of his most recent book, Drawing on Sand, Mat established Strandline Books as a working title to carry forward an ongoing exploration of the interface between drawing and writing that is at the heart of his creative practice. Mat's interests include the common ground between self-published authorial illustration and artist's books, as well as that between creative writing and figurative drawing, painting & printmaking. He is currently developing a proposal for PhD research based on these research interests.
