Artist: deborah anne withey (debwithey)

Hello! I am a visual journalist, illustrator and designer who emigrated to Wales in 2010. I have dual British and American citizenship and wanted my young son to experience life in another country. I graduated with a BFA in Visual Communications from Syracuse University, New York, USA.

My studio in lovely St. Davids, Pembrokeshire is called cheese + pickles design, not because I particularly like the sandwich, but because it sounded uniquely British (to me)! It is open to the public for creative workshops in printmaking, illustration, design and drawing. Adjacent to my studio, is our cheese + pickles studio gallery which I share with my partner, furniture designer, Grant Sonnex, @makerinwales. Come visit us!

I love to share ideas with other artists. Follow me @cheeseanpickles and cheese + pickles studio on FB. All images © deborah withey 2015
