About Amelia Ilangaratne

Amelia Ilangaratne studied BA Art and Design at the University of Leeds, graduating in 2013 with First Class Honours.

Working through pen, ink and watercolour, Amelia creates highly delicate and intricate illustrations.


  • Ilangaratne is inspired by her travels, textiles, love of animals and the natural world.
  • Her drawing style is inspired by Japanese art which uses delicate lines and patterns.
  • Her Sri Lankan heritage and visits to Sri Lanka as a child left her in awe of the variety of animals and the beauty of natural landscapes which also appear in her work.
