Fiona Marchbank

I grew up in the northern town of Harrogate on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Bred on a steady diet of colouring pencils and Enid Blyton novels I developed a strong interest in storytelling illustrations which only became stronger the more I read and the more I drew.

My Illustration indulges a fascination with storytelling, and adding an injection of the ordinary back into the extraordinary, working predominantly in digital media.

I currently work in Leeds as a freelancer as well as continuing to work on personal projects, comics, and more than occasionally skating Roller Derby.

I’m available for freelance commissions at any time, you can contact me via email or any of my social media platforms.
