Gill Smith

I am a freelance illustrator, living in Liverpool.  Ordinary life and wondering about people’s experiences, preoccupies me a lot and motivates my illustrations. For as long as I can remember, I have loved drawing people. Getting into a character’s head, from fiction or history, and seeing the world through their eyes is a springboard for my own stories to emerge.

The MA has been an absolute privilege and has pushed me to keep evolving. I am delighted that my book, The Wilful Thing is to be published in 2019.
