Hello! My name is Becki and I’m an Illustrator based in the beautiful City of York, UK.
Observational drawing is a very important part of my creative process, as it’s usually the source of an idea, character, or composition, and greatly informs the visual language within my work. My illustrations often explore narrative, and I draw much inspiration from the natural world, including plants, animals and human behaviour. I love nostalgic colour palettes and vintage graphics, especially the imagery featured on old dress patterns.
I favour traditional techniques such as watercolour painting, which is the process typically used to add colour to my drawings. This passion for creating things by hand has naturally led to exploration into other media such as textiles, craft and ceramics.
Sometimes I work by myself, and at times I work with other artists and community groups on all kinds of projects and commissions.
