Aimée van Breugel was born in Glasgow in to a Scottish mother and Dutch father. Drawing from an early age, as a child she carefully constructed entire worlds to play in. At 17, she attended Edinburgh College of Art where she received a BA hons in Visual Communication.
She utilises a mixture of graphite pencil, pastel, digital collage and vintage prints to produce monochromatic illustrations ranging from the ethereal to the macabre. Often using the dark side of human nature as a starting point, Aimée also looks to science and the natural world to create images that explore themes such as sexuality, religion and the meaning of death.
A lover of cold climates and old films, she can usually be found drawing in her Edinburgh studio, stalking the dreich cobbled streets with her camera or drinking red wine and immersed in 1930's movies.
