Hello, I’m Molly, a freelance illustrator. 

 

My work is heavily inspired by the everyday combined with a magical possibility and has been described as ‘folklorish’. 

 

My hand drawn illustrations are sold as eco-conscious prints, wearables and greetings cards in my online shop.

 

I graduated with a first-class BA Hons degree from the Textiles in Practice course at the Manchester School of Art in 2016. Since then, I have worked on projects such as book cover and website illustrations, clients include Manchester Mind. Get in touch to discuss bespoke commission work.

 

To see more of the work I create in my cosy Stockport based studio, you can join my monthly Round Up for inspiration sent straight to your inbox. I also have the Work section of my website showing my recent drawings and I also keep a blog of my creative thoughts and experiments.

If you are a retailer interested in stocking my work please get in touch at molly@mollynewport.co.uk
