Little pictures can tell big stories.
'from the imagination of ladysnail' is illustrator and print-maker, Debbie Greenaway.
Hello. I’m an illustrator and printmaker. I love making narrative illustrations and work from home in a room that is full of many things – pencils, paper, paints, books, silk screens, cacti and old christmas lights.
I love drawing and take a sketchbook with me everywhere. There is nothing better than nibbling biscuits and nursing a cup of tea while scribbling away. Ideas often start with random doodles, some come from my imagination, some from observation and some reflect daily events. Screenprinting is one of my favourite ways of making pictures.
I completed an illustration degree in 2008 and during that year the AOI selected my work for their Images 33 Annual. In the summer of 2013 and in the spring and summer of 2014, I attended several short courses and I am now studying towards a MA in Illustrated Children’s Books at the Cambridge School of Art.
