My name is Ellis and I'm an illustrator based in Leicestershire, UK. I create cute and chirpy pieces of art, a lot of the time involving lots of animals, plants and food. I used to work with traditional materials until very recently, when I turned to digital art after a hand accident in 2016. I severed the extensor tendon in my drawing hand and had to learn to write and draw again, which has been a crazy journey but didn't stop me from chasing my dream of becoming a full time illustrator.

I quit my job in the summer of 2017 to pursue my art and I now work from my home based studio where I am very happy and constantly creating.

We're a team of four (if you count the doggies!) and a family run business based in Leicestershire, UK. I design, make and pack up all of your orders and my husband James is the chief postie. Then of course we have Vespa our little Yorkie who is our Stock Control Manager and Custard our Miniature Schnauzer, who reminds us when it's time for tea and a biscuit.
