Shelly Perkins

Shelly graduated from the University of the West of England and worked as a designer in the education sector. Shelly is now a freelance illustrator undertaking work for a wide range of clients including BBC Wildlife Magazine, The National Trust and the RSPB. As well as commissions for commercial illustration work Shelly also creates a wide range of self initiated works which she sells throughout the UK. 

Shelly’s style is influenced by contemporary illustrators and new techniques. ‘I always want to keep that hand drawn and nurtured look to my images, that organic edge you can only get from a hand drawn line or brush stroke. My style took off from that desire, to use the best aspects of modern technology in collaboration with traditional techniques. The bulk of my illustrations are now assembled digitally, having been scanned from original artwork. This allows me to develop a range of layers, sometimes up to 100 layers in one illustration. I capture textures and objects to add to the illustrations.’
