Over the years I have worked at many events for Aspinal of London, illustrating in their London/UK stores for customers. I was tasked with capturing customers with their Aspinal purchases or in store favourite pieces, so that they had a moment to take home. This was especially popular in the run up to Christmas. All the illustrations shown were created with pencil, ink and then watercolour. I mainly drew 3/4 images in order to make the handbags the main focus of the illustrations and be able to have space for the detailing of the leather. It was great to work for such a high end brand, and their stores were just gorgeous!
For the January 2019 issue of women’s health and lifestyle magazine, Top Santé, I was asked to create some illustrations for a feature on the beauty of bathing. A subject I can definitely get behind as I love nothing more than a nice relaxing bath, especially during winter! The article featured products and remedies from various countries, such as Japan, France and Turkey. I represented each of these within certain elements of the main image. The tiles are inspired by those seen inside Turkish bath houses, the bamboo is a nod to Japan, and of course I have drawn a beautiful french style, roll top bath. With gold taps and ornate legs, this is pretty much my ideal bath! Overall I have tried to create a sense of luxuriousness, femininity, calm and beauty within the illustrations.
I was asked to illustrate a series of concept store illustrations for beauty brand SK-II in order to breathe life into the ideas behind some of their new pop-up stores and shopping experiences. These illustrations require a lot of attention to detail in order to convey a vibrant shop or retail space.
