My name is Amy and I’m an illustrator with a penchant for nature, mythology, maps, and storytelling. Specialisms include design for children, design for games, vector artwork, and narrative illustration. I’m from Yorkshire (yes, I do actually own a ladies flatcap and I’m working on the whippet) and I love to highlight the county’s beautiful landscapes, vast heritage, and amazing natural diversity.
I have a BA(hons) in Visual Communication: Illustration which has armed me with strong traditional drawing and painting skills, and set the stage for developing my work in to a digital/traditional hybrid. I’m as happy drawing straight into Photoshop as I am doodling with a brush pen.
I’ve always enjoyed learning new skills and trying new things. My Paper Birds were a first foray in to making paper models, which has now made me curious about 3D modelling and 3D printing. The little booklet There’s a Tiger on the Bus was my first comic/picture book, so now all I can think about are making my own art books and zines. I love how one thing can inspire another. Despite what my artwork says about me, I’m actually a bit of a nerd and interested in video games, techie tinkering (think Raspberry Pi and friends), and natural history.
