My name is Ellis and I'm an illustrator based in Leicestershire, UK. Coffee lover and friend to unicorns. Forever inspired by animals, plants and slow living. I used to work with traditional materials until 2016, when I turned to digital art after a hand accident. I severed the extensor tendon in my drawing hand and had to learn to write and draw again, which has been a strange and tough journey but it 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 with my furbabies.

This is Team Woolley, my wonderful little family. 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 coffee and a biscuit.
