About Me: I am a freelance illustrator/designer from Ireland. I have been a professional artist for most of my adult life.
As a freelance artist I have illustrated for advertising agencies, book publishers, newspapers and magazines. Before going freelance I worked as an animator for an american company here in Dublin. Watching my characters come to life on the screen was fun. I currently design cards for an Irish card company. My designs all start out as pencil sketches which I then paint in photoshop, sometimes adding a touch of water colour or pastel beforehand. I have many different styles from cartoons to fashion and fantasy. (Not all in my store yet). I especially like drawing for children.
My Interests: I love Art, Writing, Travel, Music ... and Coffee. I'm addicted to coffee and coffee shops. Most of my ideas start with a few doodles and a lot of coffee in the corner of whatever coffee shop will have me for two or three (or more) hours at a time. I have coffIed my way through London, New York, California and Sydney.
After many years on the hard stuff - black with two sweeteners ... I drink decaf now!
Hello and Welcome to my store! If you've been here before and purchased my cards, I'd like to say thank you. If it's your first visit, most cards come in a variety of titles, i.e. Granddaughter, Niece, Goddaughter, Daughter etc. They are all hand drawn and painted by myself.
In the column to the left, you can do a quick search to find the card you're looking for. I add new designs regularly, so if you can't find one today, I may have the perfect one tomorrow. Enjoy! Carol.
