Whilst other artists are using brushes, pencils and paints, Keira Rathbone uses vintage typewriters to create her works of art.

Working from her "brilliant studio space in gorgeous Chiswick" Keira uses the typewriters to type out letters, numbers and symbols, in place of brush strokes and pixels which result in her beautiful enigmatic images.

"I create drawings using my vintage typewriter as my pen. I use letters, numbers and symbols to build up a picture rather than words," explains Keira.

She moved into her new studio space in April. "The other artists working here are great, the building looks out onto massive fields and its a stones throw from the river, I feel so lucky!"

Keira's portrait of David Miliband (above right) appeared on the front cover of Diplomat magazine's March issue.
