Welcome to Doodlher! My name is Victoria Whitaker. Drawing has always been a part of my life. From the moment I could grasp a wax crayon between my fingers I’ve been exploring this endless source of creativity and expression.
I was born and raised in rural Calderdale, and now reside on the other side of the Yorkshire-Lancashire border in Rochdale, Greater Manchester.
People and Places are the primary influence to my work. I enjoy exploring the social, cultural, and historical connections that exist between the two. My natural curiosity and passion for history fuels this interest.
Each one of my illustrations begins its life as a freehand pen and ink drawing - you will rarely see me using pencils! I then add the finishing touches and colour digitally.
I have not received any formal art training, everything you see is self-taught, fuelled only by my natural ability and love for drawing.
