I am quite free, I'd love to hear about your project.
Sue lives and works in a little eco house in Newcastle upon Tyne with her husband and two children. She loves to draw, design and make things. Since leaving Edinburgh College of art in the late 1990’s, she‘s worked in-house, on a freelance basis, as an illustrator, product/licensed character developer, a designer/maker of jewellery, greetings cards and wrapping paper – never a dull moment! Sue‘s inspirations are many – from knitted toys, Japanese design, and Scandinavian Chic to Modernism, Dick Bruna and Info graphics. She‘s drawn to anything that is quirky, humorous and minimal in design, and hopes that this is reflected in her illustration. “Working with Advocate, and the exciting projects they find for me, means that I am constantly developing and evolving my work, which makes me vey happy, especially when I’m telling stories though illustrationView Full Bio
