A Little Bit About Me
Hello and thank you for stopping by, I am Victoria Louise, a professional illustrator, calligrapher and ceramic artist living in Suffolk, UK. Putting pen to paper is when I’m at my happiest, whether I'm drawing, designing or sketching out new ideas. I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil, spending many evenings beside my dad as he taught me everything he knew. When I left school, I attended Wakefield College of Art and Design post completion of the course I started a career in construction, I know what a stark difference from my study goals, but life often leads you down different roads and as a single mum I needed a reliable income. Deep down I always knew I would pursue art as a full-time career, and now 21 years later following the completion of a late but, much needed and thoroughly enjoyable BA (Hons) Degree in Design, here I am!
I love working with clay, it enables me the freedom to express myself and unlike most mediums it’s so easy to start again if all goes wrong. When I’m drawing, I become lost in the calmness and while I tend to work mainly with fine liner, I do use other mediums such as watercolour, graphite, pastels, dye and acrylic.
P.S I DON’T JUST DRAW ORIGINAL PIECES...
I can offer a bespoke service, working closely with my clients to create a one off, special piece just for you. As well as creating pet portraits, I have worked on many other projects such as hand lettering, calligraphy, wedding stationary, personalised craft pieces, personalised illustration, greeting cards and ceramic jewellery to name just a few.
I enjoy creating more than anything, but knowing my clients are thrilled with their commissions is why I love what I do.
