Fruit Illustration

It’s safe to say it’s been a long time since last I posted …. 2016 to be exact! Since then, I have had two beautiful daughters (now aged 1 and almost 4) and they have well and truly turned my life upside down. In the most amazing way of course….. but also, as you can imagine, in a sometimes all consuming way.

Though I’ve had a few commissions in the mean time, my illustration career has definitely been forced to take a back seat and while my heart is filled with so much love for my daughters, family and home life, I definitely feel an ache that can only be fulfilled through creating art.

So, I thought now was an apt time to reflect and make some updates to my portfolio and much neglected website. My hope is to create and develop my portfolio in order to attract a wider range of clients and to explore aspects of illustration and painting that I have been interested in for a while – including hand lettering and surface pattern. To start, here’s a few fruit illustration paintings I recently created…… definitely more food and lifestyle illustrations to follow!
