Keira Rathbone has always been interested in art. She has dabbled into painting and other forms of art. What sets her apart from other artists is that she uses her typewriters to create something different. She has a collection of vintage typewriters so it’s easy to understand where her artwork stems from. Most people use typewriters to write letters, but Keira Rathbone comes up with portraits and images of objects by using the letters, numbers, and symbols found on the typewriter. Creating the images is a long and meticulous process that can take up several hours. You can see her at work on the video below.
