Tracy Turnbull

Freelance Illustrator

Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
I studied Fashion Design at Newcastle Polytechnic in the late 80’s and early 90’s and worked as a clothing designer for many years. Since then I have been teaching fashion illustration, fashion graphics and portfolio skills at Northumbria University as well as building a career as a freelance illustrator.

My style tends to use a mixture of digital and hand rendering. Like fashion, I like to evolve and keep my work fresh and contemporary by drawing influences from fashion magazines, fashion blogs, cool street style and graphic design.

I’m at my happiest when people view my work and smile.
