My name is Beth McManus MBPsS* and I'm a psychologist and illustrator from Manchester, UK.

My work with illustration uses thoughts, reflections and observations as a means of storytelling. My annotated outlines encourage you to engage with each piece in a playful way - in order to read the text, you have to turn the drawing in your hands, encouraging interaction and a quiet moment of lingering in a world of infinite scrolling.

I am available for commissions and event storytelling. Current projects include working with Manchester International Festival to document their ‘Creative Community’ social events, and designing placemats for The British Council exploring how people engage with their city.
