Amelia Ilangaratne is an Artist and Illustrator based in London. She graduated from the University of Leeds in 2013 with First Class Honours in BA Art and Design. Working in pen, ink and watercolour, Amelia creates highly delicate and intricate animal illustrations. Drawing inspiration from the natural world, her artwork explores uncanny, dreamlike scenarios involving the animal kingdom. The elephant and the butterfly are often juxtaposed to incite a sense of surreality. Other influences range from the playful illustrations of children’s literature, to ancient medieval bestiaries and traditional Japanese and Chinese art.
