Anyone who has seen my collection of novelty pencil sharpeners (this one is a particular favourite) can probably attest that I love stationery and art materials... It sometimes feels like a bit of a contradiction when I create most of my client work digitally, but I use a sketchbook and 'analog' materials for drawing when I'm out and about, as I love drawing from life.

Welcome to my new blog!
For anyone visiting my website for the first time, my name is Bett, and I am an illustrator based in Bristol, UK.
I graduated with a degree in Illustration in 2011, and have been building my career in the industry ever since. Today most of my time is divided between freelance illustration projects and lecturing on the Illustration BA course at the University of South Wales in Cardiff.
I will be using this blog primarily to share updates of new work, but I also plan to discuss my process a little and share my experiences as an illustrator and lecturer.
You can read more about me and my work on my about page.
I hope you enjoy my posts, I love interacting with people so please comment!Read More
