From Fort William, based in Glasgow

I’m an illustrator with a tactile tendency. All of my output stems from my nurtured lifelong passion for drawing & sketching. Originally from Fort William, I have been based in Glasgow for 7 years, working across the mediums of surface design, publishing and the moving image to name a few. I love contributing to community and nature focused projects.

“Others are subtler reflections of Walker’s desire to create “a space that has a soul”, such as the “Wee Room”, a private area with soft lighting, in contrast to the standard clinical glare, where parents can compose themselves after leaving their child in surgery.”
