I am a designer, illustrator and lettering artist, creating illustrative work that combines hand-drawn observation with strong use of line and colour. My work is characterised by a sense of fun, often incorporating detailed compositions and playful lettering. My diverse skills have enabled me to work on a wide range of projects, from hand painted murals to commercial work for companies such as Penguin Random House, John Lewis, Chatsworth House and Virgin Atlantic. My work has also featured in international design blogs and magazines and I have spoken at design events and conferences about my work and ethos. You can also see my art direction portfolio over at where I work on more diverse projects, from brand identities to bespoke typography.

Lisa was fantastic to work with on our Children’s Guidebook project. Her creativity and beautiful illustrations really brought the stories of Harewood to life, and her professionalism and efficiency meant the project ran incredibly smoothly.
