I'm Debbie, the artist behind Bearded Squirrel, an illustrator and designer living and working in Leicester. I combine over 19 years of experience in graphic design and skills in illustration to create original art, art prints, pattern design, greetings cards, gift wrap, fabric and gifts. My work is an eclectic mix of realism and abstract, inspired by nature and the unconventional. I have a passion for botanical illustration, much of which is represented in my work, predominantly through watercolour, pen and ink, gouache and acrylic. I like to experiment with other mediums and styles such as screen print and linocut to keep my work fresh and current. Take a look at my website for a few examples of my work at www.beardedsquirrel.com or follow me on social to keep-up-to-date with new work. Commissions and licensing opportunities always welcomed, please get in touch if you like my work. I'm really excited to be attending The Handmade Fair this year, I'm looking forward to meeting lots of fellow artists and makers and chatting with all the visitors at such an inspiring event. Hope to see you there, come find me and say hello!
