Welcome to my children's book illustration portfolio!
I love making art for children, and my portfolio is a collection of the pieces I'm most proud of. Hopefully you'll love these colourful children's book characters and scenes as much as I do.
About my children's book illustrations
When I create my illustrations, I am always thinking about who will see it, how the audience will react, and whether the image is effective in telling a story and creating interest.
In my earliest books I used traditional mediums such as watercolour and ink, but now I use digital mediums such as Procreate and Adobe Illustrator. I find I can work more quickly as well as revise my work with more ease using digital mediums. This has been beneficial in making sure my clients never have to settle for something they aren't happy with!
Most of my inspiration from day to day comes from my surroundings in the natural world as well as my faith. I love a good walk in nature, or a day spent relaxing with my family in the garden. Often the things I see around me will somehow make it into the pages of whatever I happen to be working on in the moment.
I find that the moments in life that mean the most to me are the ones that seem to pass by unnoticed, the simple pleasures of being alive, and sharing life with people I love. In my illustration, I like to work around concepts such as love, friendship, empathy, emotion and beauty.
