Layla Khani

Layla takes inspiration from the landscape around the Malvern hills where her studio is located. Her work is an emotional response to the places she visits’, people she meets and stories/ poems she reads. In each print, the story within the frame happens in multiple locations and throughout separate times or even simultaneously, but they are all parts of one big picture, yet still the order in which the viewer looks at the events or reads its visual story always varies with each person and could be rearranged every time without losing its initial visual impact.

Graduating from the University of Worcester with BA in Art and Design and later Layla got her MA from the Birmingham City University (BIAD) in Visual Communications. Throughout her years at university she developed a keen interest in printmaking and in the past few years, it has become the main outlet for her creativity. More recently Layla has been developing a series of prints inspired by her surroundings in the Worcestershire landscape and beyond.
