Eyup!

Hiya, my name's Heather Chambers I'm an illustrator from Stockport, based in the North of the UK. My work consists of figurative forms, dynamic composition, and playful colour palettes. I'm a proud Mancunian and my working class roots significantly inspire my practice.

As well as Illustration, I have a huge passion for working with the community through print-based mediums, including book distribution and workshop facilitation. This type of work is done under the organisation I founded — 
Roots Press

I studied at
Stockport Art School and The University Of Sunderland, I have a BA Hons in Illustration and an MA in Design. I work in a variety of contexts, from traditional and digital illustration, to large murals, printmaking, and animation.
