Welcome to my Blog.
My name is Amy and I am an illustrator living by the sea, on the Yorkshire wolds. It’s a beautiful place to live and is a constant source of inspiration. I cannot imagine living anywhere else. During the day I work as a barista which is my daytime passion, and another outlet for my creativity….yes I make ferns in milk. I have always had a passion for art and have always drawn, ever since I can remember. I love animation and illustrations and growing up I was obsessed with comics, obviously marvel and dc, and who could forget Disney. I love Disney and I love Studio Ghibli. It is only recently that I have started thinking that I could actually make some kind of a living Out of it. I never attended any formal art education, I never studied at university, so everything I am doing now is a lesson, and I feel I am already growing as an artist. Procreate was a revelation! I am still a beginner but I already love digital art.
Art was always a career that I envied about other people, and wished that I had the talent and the time to become an artist. As many artists know, it is very daunting sharing your work and the ever present little saboteur and self doubt creep in and out. I never really thought that anyone would be interested in my art and my thoughts and basically the things that go through my head.
This year I turned 31, and thought it’s now or never.
My goal this year is to start making a name for myself and find my artistic voice and illustration style. I am very new to the whole public sharing thing, and thought it would be fun to document my progress.
At the moment you can find me in all the usual places, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter, and I am thinking about starting an art/illustrator/vlog YouTube, but it’s still just thoughts.
Please feel free to leave a comment or drop me a line, I’d love to hear from you.
