Naomi Blayney

Hello! I am an author and illustrator based in the north east of England close to historic Durham City. I love to travel and have visited many far flung places in the world but I'm always happy to come home to my little corner of the world. 

In recent years I have been particularly inspired by my two vivacious daughters Nina and Zara. Their positive outlook on life is so refreshing and their boundless energy keeps me on my toes.

I have been a landscape artist for many years, using traditional pen and ink. I took my inspiration from my local area with its historic buildings such as the 11th century cathedral and its beautiful surroundings. Since having children I have been immersed in children's picture books which prompted a change of artistic focus to illustration. I have embraced digital art with my illustrations but still use many of the traditional techniques I have developed over the years. 

I have also written several children's stories which I hope to have published soon and I am hard at work creating the illustrations for those stories.

As you can see I am in the process of building my illustration portfolio so I do hope that you check back again soon to see my progress. I also like to post my progress work on instagram.
