Gemma's illustrative work is routed in a strong visual narrative, specialising in hand-drawn comics, characters, typography and pattern. Her work is known for its quirky characters in strange situations.
Gemma has worked directly onto the caffi bar walls to produce a series of site-specific illustrations that reflect the rich and diverse history of Chapter. We are also delighted to produce a limited edition postcard that will be available for sale in The Shop for just 60p.
