About me
I am a Freelance Illustrator currently based in the east of England, specialising in editorial, advertising and publishing. Email me at amyleonardart@gmail.com Instagram: @amyleonardart I create atmospheric and ethereal urban landscapes, taking inspiration from observations of the world around me. My work can be defined using expressive painting techniques to create an emotive sense of place. I am fascinated by often overlooked places, finding beauty in mundane urban settings. I like to tell the stories of these places as well as the people who reside in them.
