ILLUSTRATION & Design work

Aside from painting original paintings, I am also very passionate about illustrating and designing, using different mediums including pencil, watercolour and pen to create unique and interesting sketches and ideas. Whether you are a new business looking for an illustrated logo, or maybe product designer looking for patterns and prints, I would love to help.



Creating the vision

Over the years I have experimented with many different subjects including food illustration, architectural studies, & people & pet portraits.

I have practised with many mediums and techniques including inks, watercolour, printing, drawing and collage. 

I am also capable of using computer software to transform my sketches and creations into files that you can easily download and begin using.

I am sure that whatever your idea, I will be able to bring your vision to life, adding that hand-crafted touch that always looks extra special.

Getting the design right is so important, which is why I'm dedicated to making sure I understand your vision, and ask for your complete honesty when reviewing the designs.

Each design or illustration will begin with an initial coloured sketch to show the idea as a composition, and to see how the colours work together. If you don't already have a clear idea in mind, you may ask for several different designs to choose from.

The final design will be completed after all the specific elements have been agreed upon, and will be sent to you digitally.

Bringing ideas to life...

Illustrated cushion design

Over the past year I have been using my designs and illustrations to create my own products and a giftware range which has included cushions, mugs, tea towels, greeting cards and jigsaw puzzles. 

It's amazing what can be created with artwork, and I hope that by looking at my examples you will feel inspired for your own projects. 

If you have any questions or feel unsure if I'm the right artist to create your design, please get in touch and share your vision. I'm not going to take on something that I wouldn't be able to do justice for!
