About

I work mainly with “traditional” (hate that word) media; pen and ink, acrylic paint, other mixed media. I like the energy of hand drawn, hand painted illustration. It seems more.. I don’t know, tactile maybe. However, I’m working on my computer skills and am able to edit/provide images digitally using Photoshop and Pixelmator.

When I draw for myself, I draw the things I’m most interested in. Buildings, machines, animals (especially sea animals – they’re so weird), the sea, boats, strange people in cafes, autumn trees… all those things. I’m drawing more and more lately.

I live and work in Edinburgh, where I studied for my HND in Illustration at Edinburgh’s Telford College (useful) and my degree in English Literature at Edinburgh University (less useful). Here’s my little studio (and my not-so-little dog, Daisy):

  1. Hi, Aimee. I’ve nominated your blog for the One Lovely Blog Award. Whether you go in for blog awards or not, I wanted to let you know how much I love your illustrations.

  2. Yes. I taught mainly in the radio studio, teaching scripting, recording, studio operations etc.
    I also worked in the art dept – scientific and technical graphics.
    Give me a name and I’ll give you several back.
