Amy Blackwell’s Illustrations Are a Riot of Color

Amy Blackwell is known for her bright and bold illustrations, but not only. The versatile artist loves experimenting with different techniques. “I’m a painter, printmaker, knitter, maker, writer, reader, and I’m very fond of pancakes,” she wrote on her website.

Based in the Midlands, she has a small studio space at backlit in Nottingham, UK. “This is where the magic (doodling/printing/bad singing) happens,” she explained.

Blackwell shares most of her work on Instagram where she has amassed quite a following. Her illustrations focus mainly on strong female personas that are painted in a range of styles.

“I’m inspired by the weird and wonderful, clashing colors, the natural world, history, fashion, and folklore. I paint, print and draw and have done (to varying levels of success) since day one,” she told Creative Boom.
