Hello. My name is Debbie and I'm an illustrator and print-maker (kinda) who loves doodling and screen-printing. I also work in finance five days a week which pays the bills and for music adventures! I live in a Warwickshire town with my husband John and enjoy reading, napping, biscuits, feeding the garden birds and watching telly. Telly favorites include Murder She Wrote, Friends, Bob's Burgers and Downton Abbey.
As I review this website in March 2023, it's been a while since my last proper creative activities as we have recently moved house and my exposure unit is currently out of action - probably a loose wire, spiders or summat - hence the kinda above.
I enjoy drawing fun stuff, characters and making little pictures. Ideas come from many things - randomness, my imagination, observation, daily events or from drawing events run by other creatives. I was introduced to the magic of printmaking a long time ago and screen-printing is my favourite way of making pictures. When the exposure unit is working - I print in my workroom and make work in small batches. My processes are quite traditional, often using pencils, paints and squeegees but I am trying to learn Procreate and improve my digital art skills to improve and develop my creative processes.
Over the years, I have studied art at various levels and done a few short courses. In January 2018, I completed a MA in Illustrated Children’s Books at the Cambridge School of Art at Anglia Ruskin University.
My items are available to buy online and in a couple of shops. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
