Artwork Description:

Title: Spell Party

Inspired by the seasons, I created this illustration for those who like Halloween, witchcraft, and spells, but in a creepy-cute kind of way!

I always sketch my artwork using pencil on a drawing pad, which I then photograph and layer in Procreate. I work on top of that to create multiple new layers and objects which make up the final illustration. It’s a bit like using a lightbox in some ways.

I love plants and flowers, and autumn is my favourite season which was the main inspiration for this illustration.

Artist Bio:
My chosen mediums are gouache and ink, and procreate is a go-to for me too. I like bigger canvases, so walls are very appealing to me!

In 2015, I completed a master's degree at The University of Derby specialising in children’s literature and illustration. I went on to become a self-employed illustrator and set up a small illustration business called Duck & Peach Illustration, and had a little shop in my adopted hometown of Belper. During the last 8 years, I have designed and painted murals for other businesses such as shops and cafes. I’ve also stocked my work with a great variety of independent stockists throughout the UK.

My work is bright and colourful and often features cute little characters, all created to make you smile.
