Dionne Stathers

Illustration BA(Hons)

I am a traditional illustrator who puts a twist on reality, playing with ideas and intrigue. Although Manchester based, I find nature idyllic compared to a cityscape and my fantasy creations come from this beautification/fascination of nature. My work is rooted between sci-fi and fantasy, collaging ideas to make hybrid forms, this surrealism is useful to develop interesting concepts. With the abillity to depict existing curious tales, my ambition is to inspire curiosity, perpetuate imagination, and evoke believable fantasy through a diverse range of non- human characters and fabulously-strange stories.
