Billy (Alex Godwin) is an English artist with a passion for colour and a focus on keeping happy and having fun through painting outside on the street and inside her studio.
Billy's work is inspired by real life events and people, the observations made from living in unfamiliar surroundings and travelling to exotic (and not so exotic) destinations, mixed with a whirl of imagination and positivity.
The distinctive shapes, characters and symbols in Billy’s work are intended to communicate a colourful visual punch in a simple attempt to encourage other people to smile and be happy too.
Billy graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2007 with a degree in Graphic Design. She has since exhibited her work around the UK and Germany, dividing most of her time between London and Berlin. Billy's paintings can be seen decorating the streets of Berlin, London, South Africa and beyond.
Billy was one of the selected artists at Pick Me Up 2014.
