Zuma Beach, Malibu CA - August 2016

HELLO,
I'M JOY-LOUISE

I'm an Illustrator and Designer from Newcastle Upon Tyne, currently living and working in London.

I have always been creative but my love for illustrating was born during my time as a Graphic Design student at Teesside University. Once I realised how much I enjoyed it, I chose to specialise in the subject during my final year and continued studying and developing my style through to Masters level.

After years of developing and experimenting with my illustrative style, the first piece I ever created that set the tone was my Woodland Jewels Owl, during the first week of my Masters back in 2013. I'm still always working to develop and better my style, at the minute i'm mainly experimenting with ways to add colour and new mediums to my original monochrome style.

Visually i'm inspired by nature, animals, florals and intricate details from every day life. Combined, my illustrations and patterns create a relaxed, bohemian, free spirited vibe which probably reflects me as a person in some ways.

Think of Felicity & Ink as my virtual diary, keeping track of what i'm working on and how i'm developing. I hope you'll keep checking back to see what i'm up to. Until then, why not follow my personal account on Instagram to see daily snippets of my life and what is inspiring me.
