About me

I'm an illustrator and print maker currently based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. Using mostly traditional methods I create ink line illustrations, as well as entirely hand carved, printed and pulled lino prints. (With the occasional digital touch up.) A lot of my time is spent rummaging in flea markets and antique shops for inspiration. Stylistically I am inspired by medieval European woodblocks, Art Nouveau, Victorian advertisements, 60s & 70s gig posters, old postcards antique matchboxes as well as Japanese woodblock prints. Previous work ranges from album artwork, gig posters, logos and designs for for the entertainment & music industries, as well as for small independent businesses. ​ These previous projects have allowed me to develop my practice. I enjoy gaining & nurturing more skills through completing exciting new commissions, as well as working alongside collaborators and through self motivated projects. ​ If you would like anything commissioned for you, feel free to get in touch! I'd love to hear from you. ​ phoebe.stephenson@hotmail.co.uk

  • Prior to my attainment of a 2:1 in English Literature, I spent a year studying as a motion graphics & animation design student at Northumbria University. Here I attained and maintained a working knowledge of Adobe software including Photoshop and InDesign as well as Autodesk Maya. This allowed me to develop fundamental knowledge of producing a digital profile, enabling me to build my portfolio, of which I still utilise to date. This is demonstrative of my design wok of album sleeves, logo & website design as well as illustrations for the student magazine. Furthermore I developed and maintained an Artsthread profile to showcase my work that I completed during this year of study.
