Artwork Description:

Title: Halloween Afternoon

I drew this for the Belper Halloween Trail 2023 and used one of the beautiful shops – Sankara Imports – as the inspiration for the building.

I have an MA in Children’s Literature and Illustration, so my artwork is always made with the young at heart in mind. I like to use a lot of colours in my artwork, and autumn is a running theme, so you can generally expect to see pumpkins and toadstools in a lot of the work I produce!

Artist Bio:
My chosen mediums are gouache and ink, and procreate is a go-to for me too. I like bigger canvases, so walls are very appealing to me!

In 2015, I completed a master's degree at The University of Derby specialising in children’s literature and illustration. I went on to become a self-employed illustrator and set up a small illustration business called Duck & Peach Illustration, and had a little shop in my adopted hometown of Belper. During the last 8 years, I have designed and painted murals for other businesses such as shops and cafes. I’ve also stocked my work with a great variety of independent stockists throughout the UK.

My work is bright and colourful and often features cute little characters, all created to make you smile.
