Maisy Summer


Maisy is an award-winning Illustrator & Animator based in Manchester, working closely with clients on projects that often have storytelling & community at their centre. She has a playful approach to her practice, creating layers of texture & details which spark visual interest and delight. Her materials of choice are often a combination of gouache, pastels, and paper cuts, letting characters and objects evolve from this handcrafted process. 

Maisy’s projects have been shortlisted in the AOI World Illustration Awards & STACK Magazine Awards, as well as received recognition in It’s Nice That, Creative Boom & Creative Review. Alongside freelancing Maisy is a Teaching Assistant on Illustration with Animation at Manchester School of Art, and runs creative network Small Fry putting on events, talks & workshops across the city and beyond.
