Olivia Daisy Coles

I am a trans artist and illustrator based in Cardiff, Wales, and I work primarily with colouring pencils to capture the magic, joy and power of queer people and the lives that we lead. My artistic practice has grown out of my freelance illustration career, which honed my skills rendering figures and landscapes but often felt creatively restrictive.

My personal journey as a trans woman navigating self-discovery deeply informed my thematic interests and desire to capture queer experiences leading me to push the content of my work beyond what was being commissioned from me, and in a more artistic direction.
