Harriet Lee-Merrion creates emotionally stimulating, intricate and thoughtful work of fantastically conscientious worlds. Sticking to black and white but with a flash of color, the illustrations portray modern and dreamy imagery with balloon heads on strings coupled with scenarios of human sensitivities.

Harriet Lee-Merrion is an illustrator currently based in Falmouth. Her illustrations have a thoughtful, hand-made feel, capturing dilemmas of the body and mind in sparing lineart. Her illustrative interpretation of a Susan Sontag quote is a beautiful reminder of the strangeness of this world-- 'Most people in this society who aren't actively mad are, at best, reformed or potential lunatics.'
