My name is Liza and I am a freelance children's illustrator based in Southampton. I work from my home studio where I create fun, quirky illustrations and unusual children’s designs. I have to admit that I have a particular love for animals in vehicles, I think something about my website may give that away. This is not the only thing I can illustrate though – there is always something new and exciting to draw around the corner – for instance one of my favourite more recent illustrations was of a cowgirl riding a catfish waving her hat around – why not!
I love all children’s illustration and enjoy creating wonderful, fun, bright characters and icons that fill a child’s imagination. I get loads of inspiration from my family, dog, cat, animals, toys, music, art, fabrics and plants - anything really!
On a more practical note - I have produced illustrations for books, games, posters/canvas prints, cards, gift-wrap, home décor and surface pattern. I have a passion for children’s design and enjoy infusing my work with colour, creativity and fun.
Some of the companies I have worked for include Hallmark, Next, Tigerprint, Happy Spaces, Oopsy Daisy, DK Books, Carlton Publishing, Caterpillar Books, Salariya Publishing, Bloomsbury Publishing, Miles Kelly, I am a Bookworm, Early Learning Centre, Glottogon, WH Smiths, Liontree Publishing and many more.
