Hello. I’m Lisa – an illustrator, designer and lettering artist. My work is characterised by detailed drawing, bright colour and texture, combining a vintage style with a modern twist. I love to create illustrations that incorporate fun and quirky ideas, invoking humour and thought or simply turning everyday subjects into beautiful visual communication.


I have worked on a variety of illustration and lettering briefs for a wide range of clients across advertising, publishing, design and editorial sectors. I have created work for:
