STORY BOOK ILLUSTRATION

STORY BOOK ILLUSTRATION

I work in several styles from semi realistic to stylised although I was trained as a Natural History Illustrator, so interpretation and actual representation is another string to my bow. My favourite “go to” traditional medium is watercolour and gouache although I find working with digital easier when it comes to making amendments and I have used digital media to enhance the traditional work as well.

Below is a collection from personal pieces, commissions, and projects that I have worked on recently in the last year.
