Niamh Cullen is an aspiring children’s illustrator based in the UK. Their work is focused on the playful and aims to display imagination. They explore themes of childhood, magic and wonder, often navigating the popular tropes of the fantasy genre. Inspired by the worlds of Tolkien, C.S Lewis and more, they hope to provide a fresh take on what it means to illustrate fantasy – whilst maintaining a sense of childlike wonder. Through experimentation with colour and texture, Cullen strives to embrace a sense of comfort and warmth whilst maintaining a unique sense of the whimsical within their own developed illustrative style.
