Hi, I'm Taylor! Although I specialise in portraiture and picture book illustration, I enjoy working across a wide range of areas, including album artwork, animation and design. I’m passionate about telling stories, whether through the details in a portrait or through sparking the imagination of children in a picture book. After graduating from Sixth Form with A-Levels in Art, I.T. and Philosophy, I went on to study at Birmingham City University and graduated with a BA (Hons) in Visual Communication (Illustration). My recent work includes being the Social Media Executive and Designer at an Oxford-based publishing company, as well as working as a freelance illustrator and designer on several children's books.
I began drawing fan portraits in 2009, and over the years, actors and musicians such as Sam Claflin, Nico Mirallegro, Dan from Bastille, The Vamps, Charlie Simpson and Ella Eyre have all recognised my work. Although I still draw fan portraits, I have also been commissioned by people all over the world to draw their families, pets and favourite landscapes, from Norway to Australia.
