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.
So it’s that time of year again, one of my favourites! Out come the opulent dresses and heels as it’s time to celebrate! 2018 has been a pretty great year for me (although not without it’s downs!) and I’ve see a huge increase in the amount of live illustration bookings coming in. That means that next year my calendar is already filling up and 2019 is set to be a busy one! Although I definitely plan to take more holidays than I have in the past, a girl needs her rest, so here's looking forward to 2019, cheers everybody!

Having an illustrator at your event is a great way of showing your customers or guests that they are important to you, and really helps to make their experience extra special. Unlike traditional caricatures, my illustrations are both glamorous and flattering. I try to capture the overall look of my subject in a quick 5-10 minute illustration, using pencil, ink and watercolours. Like the fashion illustrations created by designers, they show off the outfits and patterns, hairstyles and accessories in a fun and playful way.
