Heather Ellis' Profile

About

Hello everyone,
My name is Heather and I live in Birmingham in the UK.

I am a writer & illustrator of children's Christian picture books and also design rubber stamps and clear stamps for the Hobby Craft market.

I am a Christian, a dreamer, a Sunday school teacher and I absolutely thank God for giving me this talent, I just can't see what else I would have been!

Children play an important part in my work for they are my inspiration when I create my art. I love drawing and painting cute characters. Children and animals feature a lot in my work.

I love using watercolour and gouache and I sometimes use coloured pencils.

Hello everyone,

I am a writer & illustrator of children's Christian picture books and also design rubber stamps and clear stamps for the Hobby Craft market.

My work process:
I love using watercolour and gouache and I sometimes use coloured pencils.
If I read certain words, maybe from a book or from a song, automatically an image will come to my mind and I know straight away thats the image I have to illustrate. I then produce a very quick rough sketch of the image thats in my mind. If I am happy with my sketch, I then tighten up the drawing, then ink in using a waterproof pen or with a pencil. I would then apply my wash of watercolour or gouache paints to the drawing.

I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating it for you and for the children you know.

Enjoy! xx
