Illustrator and Printmaker
Hello. My name is Debbie and you can just about see me in the photo above. I am an illustrator and print-maker who adores doodling and screen-printing. I also work in finance four days a week which pays the household bills and for my music adventures!
There is always a pencil and paper nearby as I try to draw as often as I can. Some ideas are random, some come from observing everyday life and some are generated from word play bingo. Lions, birds and foxes are some of my favourite characters to draw and my aim is to keep creating new characters and to develop my story writing skills.
When it comes to printing, I look through my drawings, select a doodle and through a process of scanning and drawing, I create a screen-print design. These designs are often printed in small limited runs as cards and occasionally, as a print.
I currently live in Warwickshire with the Mr and Alice the Cat Shape. I love reading, cycling, napping, biscuits, feeding the garden birds, eating and watching telly. Favorites include Monk, Murder She Wrote, Friends, The Simpsons, Futurama, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Downton Abbey.
My cards and a small range of other handmade items are available to buy online and in a few UK shops/galleries. If you are interested in working with me, collaborating, stocking my work or have any questions, please get in touch via my email address firstname.lastname@example.org (it's an old email address from 2000 that I refuse to let go of!)
Please visit my website again in the near future as I am updating it often and/or find me on Instagram under @debbiegdraws
