Announcement    Hello & welcome to my shop!
I love to create mostly simple monochrome artwork that is perfect for your minimalist home. Occasionally a splash of colour appears or I get complex with intricate patterns.
Sustainability is really important to me so where possible everything is thoughtfully sourced or made from recycled paper & I aim to use no plastic where possible (& I’ve sourced biodegradable plastic when needed). I have also started turning any scrap papers or sketches into new paper to draw original drawing onto.

I'm inspired to draw based on the seasons, with lots of floral prints and I aim to create a new flower drawing for each month of the year to reflect what's blooming in the garden and woodland. I also work in a tea specialist so I love to draw anything related to tea (or coffee). A lot of my inspiration comes from the lovely land of Wales that I get to call me home.
Please feel free to get in touch about commissions. To see what I'm up to come say hello on Instagram @CarissaTanton

Thanks for stopping by :)

Updates

Lily of the Valley drawing for May now available as a print or digital download.
New limited edition Bluebells print. Limited to 4 prints on beautiful Lokta paper. Happy spring herb
Being eco friendly is so important to me. All prints are sent with protective recycled grey board, but I was concerned they’re another single use item destined for the bin. Now I’m turning them into pieces of art with ink! To be kept and framed or gifted.

About

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'm inspired by 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,
