About

My name is Amy Gallagher and I'm a UK based cartoonist, comic artist and illustrator. My style is playful, charming, and contemporary, often featuring themes of humour and cheekiness. I love to produce artwork audiences can identify with or bring forward emotions of joy and delight.

My work has universal appeal due to its simple, colourful and cartoony forms. I use illustration and comics to its best advantage to catch the audience's eye, tell a story, or communicate an abstract idea.
