Izzie Klingels studied Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art in London. After graduating she founded Lazy Eye, making videos and tour visuals for bands such as Death in Vegas and Beth Orton. She has worked commercially as an illustrator and director since 2001, for a diverse range of clients including Absolut Vodka, The Barbican, Coco De Mer, Cowshed, British Elle, The Guardian, Italian Marie Claire, Random House, Topshop, The V&A, Vogue and Volvo. She now focuses equally on non-commercial work, recently exhibiting her drawings and videos in Los Angeles, London and Seattle.
She currently lives and works in Seattle, where she finds inspiration in the damp lushness of the city and the dark mystery of the old growth forests and mountains that surround it.

Her work appears in many books including 'Hand To Eye' (Laurence King Publishing), a book on contemporary illustration, and it's follow up 'The Picture Book', ‘Sequential Images” by Mark Wigan and 'The Purple Book', a compendium of contemporary art and illustration exploring symbolism, sensuality, and the imagination.

She has been featured in a range of publications including British Vogue, Dazed and Confused, Creative Review and Computer Arts Projects.

Izzie has lead workshops at the V&A Museum in London, Selfridges (Future Punk) and London College of Communication. She has given lectures at Chelsea College of Art, Middlesex University, University for the Creative Arts Epsom and Northwest College of Art.
