Eleanor is a participatory artist and illustrator living in Bristol and working around the world, recently spending a year in Vietnam.

Debate around sustainability, urban change, what it means to be a woman and notions of community underpin her creative practice. Eleanor’s work responds to and challenges public, urban and socio-political tensions through encouraging and engaging diverse communities: from people with dementia to school children or refugee women amongst others.

Eleanor studied BA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and an MSc Sustainable Development at UWE. Eleanor is also an illustrator, map-maker and pattern designer
