Illustrator, Storyteller and Artist

Jay Stelling is an illustrator and doll maker from Ripon, North Yorkshire.
She is a recent Illustration graduate from Leeds Arts University.
Growing up in the small, historic city of Ripon, Jay found a love for the rural scenery and folk legends of Yorkshire. Entranced by Cicely Mary Barker's 'Flower Fairies' and Jim Henson's 1986 film 'Labyrinth', Jay has been imaginging her own mystical lands since childhood and refuses to leave these charming dreams behind.
Jay makes her handmade dolls using wire armatures, paper mache and found materials and jewellery.
Her work is usually aimed at children and she hopes to continue building worlds and telling stories.
Jay’s dolls have been featured in Art Doll Quarterly, Dolls House and Miniature Scene Magazine and she was also a participant in the Best Handmade Toy Competition for Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas on Channel 4 2018.
