Hello! I'm Donya an artist, illustrator and comic book maker who specialises in telling tales through art. My work is inspired by the magical, mystical and macabre which shines through in my narrative style. My award nominated graphic-novels are sold worldwide, I freelance for all kinds of businesses and clients, publish books and I run Chubbytown, an online illustrated clothing shop.
I'm currently studying a masters in Authorial Illustration at Falmouth University. previously I studied Illustration at the University of Plymouth and Hokkaido College of Art and Design in Japan. I'm now living on a farm in Cornwall with my partner & our two cats.
We're in the process of moving into our brand spanking new studio. pics will be coming soon. In the meantime keep an eye on my blog for updates. When I'm not freelancing, studying or at art fairs I teach, lecture and give talks as a higher education visiting specialist in Illustration.
