Arabella Simpson is an artist, currently based in the quaint, rural town of Ludlow. Her work is described as a whirlpool of images that she collects and arranges in a kooky way to create graphic illustrations that are somewhat naive and dark.
Throughout her creative life, being neurodivergent, her obsession with exotic objects, kids' cartoons and Japanese culture grew as she gained more opportunities. She began searching for these collections through an array of platforms, including the internet and the surroundings she senses.
