I’m a freelance illustrator and writer and I aim to produce fun,fresh,contemporary design with a touch of BAM! I love seasidey things, French things and secretly want a little whitewashed cottage by the sea or in France.! I don’t like crabs they are a bit spooky and go sideways which is just WRONG!….So I have put one on the base of my website just for the hell of it..!…..
I generally work in the mediums of bright watercolour inks and pen with the odd dollop of gouache or pencil and maybe a bit of collage or sparkly bit thrown in. Sometimes I will add different typo via computer but 99.9% of my work is hand drawn and I like to keep it that way as it feels more original.
I design for….*Books * magazines * cards *Wrap * bags* Social Stationery *postcards *posters * tableware* housewares* ceramics* *stitchcraft* and *craft stamps*. anything really. I can tailor my style to fit your needs. I also write *sentiment, jokes, verse, ditties and captions *usually with a humerous slant or just a good old heartfelt line or two. I also write childrens books.
My style is generally quite on trend and contemporary using current colours and speak . I also specialise in** DOGS and CATS ** and these have gone on to heaps of products including cards/bags/wrap/ceramics/stitch sets/die stamps/ books and furnishings. I have many clients here and abroad, some high street names, some not and I love designing ranges to order and creating and developing characters whether for book illustrations or surface pattern. I’m very quick and on the dot for deadlines so I would be delighted to work with you creating a new line or packaging development.
