Lorna Robey is an illustrator and print designer based in Leeds.
Lorna’s practice is process led, driven by a love of colour, collage, and screen print, while a fascination with narrative, character, and human behaviour informs her illustrative style. She incorporates handcraft processes and manual print techniques with digital illustration to create complex and textural imagery.
As a queer illustrator, Lorna creates work promoting equality in all forms as part of an inter-sectional feminist practice. Her pieces are informed by contemporary social and political issues including fast fashion, feminism and sustainability.
Whilst studying Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design at Leeds Arts University, Lorna developed a love for transforming paper-cut collage into intricate screen prints. As a graduate, Lorna continued to grow her practice and business alongside working full time.’ Taken from a profile on the artist by People of Print. Read the full feature here.
