i was a busy commercial illustrator for 15 years then a busy mother for 10.
i'd like to be a busy illustrator again (children both having fabulous careers up chimneys).
regular work has come from newspapers and magazines (i'm good with short deadlines and enjoy working in b&w). previous clients include the ft, sunday times, times, telegraph, tes, nursery world, moneywise, investors chronicle and you magazine.
other lovely projects have come from the bbc, saatchi, faber and serpents tail.
i work in photoshop in a lino style - good for a crisp image or when a lot of detail is required.
i also work in soft pastel - good for a simple bold composition and when a longer deadline is available (although my idea of a long deadline may be what you'd call a quick turnaround so always worth enquiring).
