Name: Amy McCullough | Birthdate: 12/02/1998 | Location: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Bio:
A self taught artist, I grew up in the countryside at the foot of the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland. I had aspired to be an illustrator since I was a teenager, and would often practice my skills late at night after school. It was during these nights when the sky was clear and full of stars that I grew a fascination with creating art themed around outer space.
 
I've since moved to the city of Belfast where I work as a freelance illustrator, keeping the same mindset of drawing what's important to me and what excites me, which has branched out into themes of space exploration, the natural world, and environmentalism. 
 
I hope you can share that excitement with me when seeing my art ✧
