Tori Stowe

Two years ago I started again, with a white page, writing, thinking, drawing endless lines towards a visual story that truly represented me. Blinkers. My love of nature, comfort in the framework of design, confusion about cultural identity, my endless search for a place which is home, displacement, longing for belonging. History not being my story -themes which are continuous and central within the rush of my life.


This portfolio is the collection of drawings - done and sold - which I feel best represent my current work, which I would now like to exhibit to a wider audience. I am interested in solo exhibitions & curated shows.oduct development but more usually takes reward from doing what she loves on a daily basis, and fresh coffee.
