Harriet Lee Merrion: Untitled

Work / Illustration

Harriet Lee-Merrion’s mesmerising narrative illustration

Harriet Lee-Merrion’s emotionally charged, complex and thoughtful work is absolutely breathtaking. Mostly rendered in black and white but with occasional flashes of pastel colours, Harriet’s compositions combine traditional Japanese influences with strikingly modern and dream-like imagery. We love her fine, delicate strokes, and the magnifying bubbles which subtly reveal complex emotional narratives. Harriet is part of the Beginning, Middle, End collective, a group of Falmouth-based illustrators who frequently publish a hand-bound publication of sparse narrative strips, which is well worth a look at. Harriet’s drawings are simply beautiful, and it is easy to get lost in the stories contained in her thoughtful, evocative lines.
