Holly is a freelance illustrator based in Falmouth, Cornwall, a place that has captured her heart since moving there from rural Gloucestershire for her degree in illustration.

 

Her illustrations are primarily digital, although she is also inspired by the printmaking practises of lino and screen print, the textures and layer processes transferring across into her digital work.

 

She is greatly influenced by her local surroundings of the coast and love of the natural world. To find inspiration, Holly may be found walking the coast path, whist looking at fungi, fauna, and other wildlife. She aims to capture an essence of Cornwall in her work, trying to evoke a true representation of coastal areas and the wildlife found there.

 

Holly’s client work has involved working with several local Cornish companies, including In Falmouth magazine and Forever Cornwall Cottages. Recently she has worked on a wildlife book out later this year. She also has a small online shop which she stocks regularly with illustrated prints.
