Louise Poulsom Illustration

I qualified in Illustration at Leeds Metropolitan University and now specialise in children's illustration.

My favourite projects are those where I am able to work with figurative illustration. I learned to draw people by stalking my prey like a big cat with a notepad, perching in obscure areas ready to scribble. Markets, bus-stations, train-stations, town centres, bars, cafes, playgrounds, festivals and shops were some of my frequent haunts but having a sketchpad always on hand meant I captured some interesting moments and blessed me with a lifetime of inspiration for future work.

I work with pencil, dip pen, rotring pen and ballpoint pen. For colour work I add colour digitally using Photoshop which gives a bold colour and makes amendments swift and simple.

I have previously sold privately commissioned glassware from this site but due to increased work demands I am no longer able to take orders.  My earlier work may be seen on my youtube video in the links page.
