ABOUT ME

Hiya, my name is Madeleine and I am a Canadian illustrator lost in Edinburgh. I moved to Scotland in 2017, after completing a Masters degree in Art History. What was to be a one-year layover, has since become my home after finding wonderful creative and LGBTQIA+ communities and falling in love with Scotland (and my partner). 

 

My work is often informed by my background in art history and plays with inspirations from early modern print culture and pop art. I work in both traditional and digital mediums (including scalable vectors for commercial work) and particularly enjoy illustration projects that involve the LGBTQIA+ community.

 

You can find more of my work under the name YLWBK illustrations on Instagram (@ylwbkillustrations) and Etsy (YLWBK illustrations). Get in touch if you have a project in mind or know where you can buy maple cookies in Scotland!
