Art Rookie

Artist: deborah anne withey (debwithey)

Hello! I am a visual journalist, illustrator, designer and passionate art for wellbeing practitioner who emigrated to the land of her father's birth --Wales, in 2010. All my designs have been created as illustrations or mono prints made by hand. My inspiration comes from the sea and the land, but also from the characters and friends I encounter. I love the play of bold colour and black line.

My studio in lovely St. Davids, Pembrokeshire is called cheese + pickles studio, not because I particularly like the sandwich, but because it sounded uniquely British (to me)! It's open to the public for creative workshops in printmaking, illustration, design and mindful drawing. Email for details and booking.

I love to share ideas with other artists. Follow me @cheeseanpickles, on Instagram and cheese + pickles studio on FB. All images © deborah withey 2017
