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, biscuits, a bit of cycling, 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 recently moved house and my exposure unit is currently out of action - probably a loose wire, spiders or summat - hence the kinda in the first sentence 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.
