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 (hons) degree in Illustration at Exeter Art College.
I have also pursued my love of Literature, History, and Languages with a BA
in Humanities (History, Art and Literature). I continue my studies at the Faculty of Astrology, and of course in the arts generally! I I also currently teach drawing and painting online via Skype or Zoom.
To date I've illustrated a range of books, including one on tropical birds (Cassells) and several children's books about the adventures of a cat (Adelaide books). I have also created literary etchings inspired by the poetry of narrative. Exhibitions of my landscapes and other paintings in Oil, Watercolour and Acrylic have been held at the Edwin Young Gallery and at other venues in Salisbury.
I regularly undertake portrait commissions of people and animals, as well as illustration work.
Please check my Etsy page for availability of Giclee Prints and original paintings....
Here is more info about recent awards for books I've illustrated.....
