Octavia Inns (b.1999) is an artist based in Derbyshire working primarily with drawing, painting and printmaking. Her work weaves together observations of the everyday with elements of memory and imagination. These observations and recollections sit alongside figurative elements and presences to visualise the feelings of being in a particular space at a particular time. She graduated from the BA Illustration with Animation course at Manchester School of Art in 2022.
