Billy Ruffian (she/her)

I'm an illustrator and story maker from south Devon, UK.


My favourite thing is exploring history and nature through visual narratives, both factual and fictional. I've worked with museums and health researchers to bring oral histories alive in Gasping and What's a Mine, Dad? as well as writing and self-publishing short graphic stories such as On the Edge of the Sea and The Seagull Child.
