My name is Steph, I’m a freelance illustrator from Leeds, West Yorkshire. I work both traditionally with pen, ink and watercolours as well as digitally to create my illustrations and hand lettering. I absolutely love what I do and feel very privileged to have worked with some great clients over my 15 years in the industry so far. When I’m not working with clients I run an online shop selling art prints, stationery and painted ceramics.
I’m lucky to live in a beautiful market town on the edge of the Yorkshire dales, which is where I can usually be found outside of work. I draw so much inspiration from the magic of the countryside! My work is visibly inspired my nature and the natural world and nothing brings me more joy than plonking myself down in a pub or cafe with my sketchbook after a walk somewhere pretty.

I work as both an illustrator and a consultant on creative projects. I pride myself in open, honest communication and transparency... Plus I love chatting with people about creative solutions - get in touch and let’s work together!
I have worked extensively within both the editorial and book publishing industry. Books and book cover illustration are my absolute favourites so feel free to get in touch if you think I might be a good fit for your next project. Having said that I am open to working with people within most industries and I am hugely passionate about mental health, animal rights and equality.
