Ami Freed is a locally based illustrator who graduated from Sussex Coast College Hastings with a Foundation Degree in Illustration and the Top-up Degree in Art and Design in 2014.

One of Ami’s illustrations has been made into a mural at the Station Plaza campus of SCCH which can be viewed from anywhere in the Atrium.

‘This piece was inspired by optical illusions; I distort perspective and play with vanishing points and viewpoints. I include specific details of a street, drawing each brick and paving stone, conveying the personality to the viewer which creates an easily comprehensible map. My work

represents an intricate web of lines using high levels of detail to capture the character of a place’ says Ami.ami freed

She added, ‘Studying at Sussex Coast College Hastings was great for me as they offer Higher Education locally. I enjoyed my course at the college and found the tutors to be very helpful. I particularly enjoyed a unit where I was required to create work to sell.’
