Client Testimonials

What do my clients say about working with me?

“Amanda has just completed a heavily illustrated nature book I commissioned her for with Weidenfeld & Nicolson at Orion Publishing. She has done a wonderful job, with over 80 interior illustrations and cover illustration, all beautifully considered and executed. Her thoughtful colour use shows a vision for the book as a whole, conveying the changing seasons in a beautifully integrated way. She communicated her plans and progress brilliantly throughout the tight schedule, keeping organised with where everything was up to. She was also just a lovely person at the other end of all the multiple emails involved in a complex project like this! The author and publishing team have all been impressed with her work, appreciative of her accommodating our various requests and delighted with the results which have elevated this book and will help it to stand out in the market”.

From the off, Amanda was approachable, always made herself available and delivered work reliably throughout the project. Her passion for her work made the process a joy. It was a pleasure working with Amanda and I’m looking forward to our next collaboration.”

Amanda Illustrated food trends feature for ‘friday magazine’ based in the UEA. Friday is a weekly magazine part of Gulf News, based in Dubai. Proving that working across the world via email can work. I was so excited to receive the first draft which was exactly what I imagined. Dropping the final images on the page was the result of a great project working with Amanda. Look forward to future commissions.

“We worked with Amanda on an illustration project for a client that required a very tight turnaround. She delivered great quality work that was exactly on the brief we set and well within time limits. She was great to work with and we plan to work with her again in the future when the chance arises.”

Managing Director at Thirst

“We commissioned Amanda to create 4 bespoke illustrations for one of our new product launches, we had tried photography and CGI but just couldn’t get it right. After looking at Amanda’s portfolio, I could see that she was the perfect illustrator for the job. We were delighted with the outcome, 4 stunningly beautiful illustrations that captured the essence of our product perfectly. She was responsive, friendly and very professional in her approach! Communications were excellent and we were fully involved in the process. Great job Amanda, we would 100% use your talents again in the future!”

Senior Brand Manager at SHORE

Creator of richly detailed, hand rendered, watercolour art, illustration & pattern

My specialist areas are food & nature.

With sixteen years experience working as an Artist, Illustrator and Pattern Designer. I’m extremely well practiced at delivering a high quality bespoke artwork service for my clients. I have had the pleasure of working with a diverse range of companies, from small independents, to large multinationals. My artwork has been commissioned by manufacturers, publishers and design studios for a large variety of end products, some of which include, magazines, books, packaging, menus, websites, cards, stationery, home-ware and apparel.

Illustration is a such powerful medium, having the ability to capture the essence of a product or brand and to bring ideas to life with beauty, charm and personality. I have a keen eye for detail and make sure that my artwork works perfectly with a client’s own branding and is aligned with their company ethos and message.

All illustrations and patterns are carefully crafted by hand, using watercolours, coloured pencils and ink, then scanned at high resolution and turned into layered digital files. Working this way, I can create with traditional artisan techniques and fuse that with the ease of digital files for my clients.

I particularly love working with brands in the natural health and wellbeing sector. I’m really interested in reconnecting and working with nature for better mental and physical health. I live in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside and constantly inspired by my surroundings. I absolutely love spending time out in nature, walking, running and biking, these are definitely things that feed my soul and make me happy! 🙂

I am slightly obsessed by food! Eating it, cooking it, daydreaming about it and drawing it. It’s a huge passion of mine and obviously a big influence in my work. I like to take a trip around the world by exploring different foods from different cultures.  

I make working with me easy and enjoyable. You can relax because you are in safe hands, I’m friendly and efficient, an Artist you can trust to deliver on all fronts. As well as delivering you high quality, beautiful artwork that perfectly meets your brief I have excellent communication skills and will communicate with you through out the project. 

 If you feel my style and vibe would be a good fit for you, your company & project, then don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can have a chat about how I can help you.
