Hi, I’m Eva a freelance illustrator and designer with a love of pattern and colour.
My design experience includes book illustration for Annova and Tango books, toy design for Jellycat, editorial and greeting card markets.
My work explores a wide range of inspiration, in particular elements from nature, European folk art, Scandinavian and mid-century design and vintage objects, especially ceramics and textiles.
I like to draw using pen and ink and add colour and texture using Photoshop and Illustrator.
I am always on the lookout for something interesting to draw, looking at shape, line and texture that can work itself into a design.
I am a versatile designer and enjoy the challenge of new projects. I am able to deliver projects on schedule and imaginatively interpret set briefs.
Please contact me to discuss any freelance or licensing opportunities.
I hope you enjoy looking through my work.
