Becki Harper is an illustrator based in the historic city of York. Her work often explores narratives strongly blended with curiosity and nostalgia, and she draws much of her inspiration from nature and science. Observational drawing is highly important to her creative practice, as it’s often the source of an idea, character, or composition, and
greatly informs the visual language within her work. She favours traditional techniques such as watercolour painting, which is the process typically used to add colour to her drawings. This passion for creating things by hand has naturally led to exploration into other media such as textiles and craft.
