Average item review
5 out of 5 stars


Excited for the lockdown to be lifting more in Wales tomorrow and I’ll soon be able to explore the mountains again! The studio is still working with social distance measures so there’s an extra day or two for dispatch times. Hope you’re all keeping safe x
The print studio is still shipping prints as normal during the lock down. Digital downloads are also available for printing at home, to use as wall art or colouring in pages. Stay safe x
New print now available!
I’ve also upgraded the paper that I’m printing on to, and rather than raise the price I’ve just dropped free shipping. Therefore if you order more than one print you get a better deal (free shipping is never really free anyway!)

Carissa Tanton Illustrations

Hello there and welcome to my shop:

I'm Carissa, an illustrator based in lovely North Wales, and I feel so very luck to live between the sea and the mountains. When I'm not drawing I'm out and about getting some fresh sea air or up a mountain.

Aside from illustration I'm also really passionate about tea, and a couple of days a week I work in a tea specialist, so you may see elements of this passion in my drawings (oh and I do love my morning coffee too of course!).

I'm inspired by simplicity and minimalism which can be seen in the lines of my mostly monochrome work. Almost everything that I draw can be achieved with just a pen and a piece of paper.

It's important to me that we take care of this beautiful planet of ours so I'm constantly striving to make my prints as eco friendly as possible (as well as making adjustments to my personal life too, especially trying to avoid plastic).

Me and my partner Iwan are the proud owners of one sausage dog (Frankie) and 3 crazy cats. My favourite food is pasta and I'm quite partial to a glass of wine or two (especially natural organic wines). My favourite word is probably "lovely" and I love flowers.

I am most active on Instagram so if you'd like to see what I'm up to come find me on there (@CarissaTanton) and if you have bought a print from me I'd love to see it hanging in your home so please do tag me in any pictures you have :)

Much love,

C. x
