Illustrator and Silk-screen Artist

Melissa North

Melissa is a London based illustrator and screenprinter creating vibrant artworks with a silk-screen print aesthetic. Influenced by analogue processes, Melissa collages together photographs and drawings to create illustrations that have a tactile quality.

A lover of travel, Melissa often creates work about the places she has been (or would like to go to). Bringing her images to life with a narrative is an important part of Melissa’s process and inspiration for this is found by researching local history, wildlife or looking to the architecture and urban details of a location.

Selected clients include: SAGA UK, Landor Associates, Printclub London, Kindred Studios and Firewords Magazine.

Melissa is also the co-founder of Underway Studio, an illustration and printmaking collective based in Brixton. She collaborates with the members of Underway Studio on limited edition prints alongside making her own work.
