Little pictures, tell big stories.
Hello my creative name is 'debbie g draws'. I work four/five days a week in a finance role and draw/screenprint in my spare time.
I love drawing, creating characters and I work from home in a room that is full of music, pencils, silk-screens, second-hand treasures and party lights.
I always carry pencils and paper with me. Ideas start in many different ways - random doodles, my imagination, observation and some reflect daily events. I discovered the magic of printmaking a long time ago and screen-printing is my favourite way of making pictures. Over the years, I have built up my home screen-printing equipment and I try to print as often as I can.
I completed an illustration degree in 2008 and the AOI selected my work for their Images 33 Annual. In 2013 and 2014, I attended three short courses in picture books and writing. In January 2018, I completed a MA in Illustrated Children’s Books at the Cambridge School of Art at ARU.
