Hi there! I’m Sharpay, an illustrator, story teller, researcher and visual communicator based in London and Grangzhou. In my practice, I explore the experiences of people within a particular place, informed by their social histories recorded in archives and by oral story telling. My work is primarily drawing-based, using both traditional and digital media. I’m also passionate about travel diaries and observational drawings.

Always open for potentail collobration and commission~
