like fantasy creatures, fabulous ladies
and romantic environments?
You have come to the right place
I am primarily a self-taught digital painter, although I revisited my traditional roots during my Masters in Illustration. Combining them to enhance my work, both on and off the computer screen. I overlay and play with found textures I take of interesting materials I find on my mini exploration trips. My messy style and love of textures have really lent to my work and process. Often people mistake my digital for traditional painting!
I enjoy drawing anthropomorphized deities and animals, playing with personifications. Often using animal features to express a character’s feelings and experiences, or just for fun! I love to design fantasy characters from fantasy realms, and have found various ‘online’ societies to be inviting of my work.
Most of my commissions currently come from these societies of escapism. In the last few years I travelled to various geek/fantasy conventions all over the UK to sell and promote my work. My fan base has gradually built up around my Romantic feminism style, which is often absent in game/fandom conventions.
I am known as ‘Heartlilly’ by my fans, online fandoms and at the conventions I attend. You’ll find me drawing in my spare time and gaming. So much so, the two worlds have now crossed over, heavily inspiring my work. I do commission work as often, mainly for individuals who want character concepts. I also attend as many conventions as I can, as an attendee and artist.
