Annie McGee

Annie McGee is an illustrator and writer in Warrington, Cheshire. She’s currently exploring how to use her art to share her personal experiences of chronic illnesses and hidden disabilities whilst creating awareness, particularly for those with hypermobile Ehler Danlos Syndrome and it’s co-morbidities.

When she’s not toddler-wrangling, Annie can be found in her hive of creativity, known as The Art Shed, nestled amongst her midcentury drawers filled with art supplies and shelves of picture books, bopping along to music from the 1950s that crackles from her record player.

Annie loves to experiment and enjoys tailoring her materials to each project she undertakes, diving into inks, watercolours, pastels, crayons and digital mediums. Her work is character-led with bold colour palette choices, influenced by her love for adventure and mystery novels. She loves to illustrate historic themes, daily life experiences and myths and legends from around the world.

I’m very excited to start the Pathways course in January. I have dreamed of creating stories for children that explore diversity and the challenges I’ve experienced as someone with hidden disabilities. I can’t wait to start learning with a fabulous network of industry experts and to meet the other students!
