Hello, I'm Pippa. Welcome to my site!
Here's a little about me.....
I have always loved art,
and enjoyed illustrating my
homework as a child in Latin or nature
classes. I originally took a BA in illustration at Exeter Art College, and later pursued my love of Literature, languages and history with a Humanities BA. I continue to develop both as an artist and illustrator, and as a facilitator and healer.
So far I've illustrated a range of award winning books, including several children's books about the adventures of a cat! (Adelaide books) My first illustrated book was on Tropical Lorys, and published by Blandford Press (Cassells). I've also created literary etchings inspired by the poetry of narrative, and have had exhibitions of my landscapes and other paintings in Oil, Watercolour and Acrylic at the Edwin Young Gallery and at other venues.
I'm also available for private tuition, and online lessons - I have run workshops for children and portrait and life drawing classes for adults. Please do get in touch, and I would be happy to discuss a workshop, tuition or commissions of any kind.
Evoking the underlying rhythm of what I see with colour and expressive line characterises my approach to painting and drawing - In my illustration work, I aim for essential character and humour. Most of my pieces are available as high quality Fine Art prints. Please drop me an email for details, availability & time scale...
