Becki Hiscocks

Becki Hiscocks is a Bristol based illustrator with a background in Fine Art and education. Her work reflects a fascination of anatomy, focusing on her observation and understanding of the structure and function of the human form. She is particularly interested in pathology, viewing disease as the narrative of the body.

Becki combines anatomical knowledge with historical symbols and references of the decorative and the ornate. Images are constructed with a monochrome palette to reveal a softness and beauty in subjects that might otherwise be seen as unsettling.



Finished pieces developed from observational drawings made in pathology labs and dissection lectures.


The patient and their story. Thinking about people who have donated their body to medical science and how to represent them. An alternative idea of portraiture.
