Arkolina is an illustrator and maker living in Bedfordshire.
She splits her time between working on her illustration and running art related workshops (mostly for young people) and is looking to branch out soon into online tutorials as well.
She has worked with Local Councils, Full House Theater Co, Culture Plus, Community Newspapers and more. She is an arts award adviser for the Discover and Explore Level and fully DBS checked.
She worked mostly in marker until her relatively recent discovery of Gouache paint which has changed how she approaches her work dramatically.
Although very comfortable around a computer with Photoshop and Illustrator she believes a brush is still her best tool for getting a job done to satisfaction.
She also has a bit of a thing for mermaids.
