Eleanor Doughty is an illustrator originally from the D.C. area & now based in Seattle in the Pacific Northwest. Her studio practice is located at the historic Inscape Arts building.

She has worked as a full-time freelance artist & educator since 2017, gradually finding her niche in location illustration and large-scale works. 

When Eleanor isn’t drawing, she can be found tossing peanuts to neighborhood crows or riding her scooter through the mountains & seaside roads of the Puget Sound region.
