Why Choose Us?

With my own unique illustration style, attention to detail and love for what I do, I try to produce images that will bring as much joy to others as they have done to me drawing them. I do take on commissions, particularly for pet portraits and personalised images. So, if you're looking for something unique and individual you've come to the right place! 

The products I have produced using my artwork are all made to the highest standard and quality. Customer satisfaction and communication is very important to me so I will keep you informed of all processes along the way.

'Thank you so much for my stunningly beautiful illustration for my wife's Christmas present. The detail is amazing and you have captured my thoughts to perfection.'

About Us

Julia Hill


I am a Devon based illustrator, living and working in Torquay. I have always been creative and grew up with the countryside as my playground. I love the natural environment and have drawn wildlife, flora and fauna from a young age. I trained as a graphic designer and illustrator in the 1980s and have worked in many varied roles. I found myself in an educational position for 20 years after my children were born but always kept my illustration and design going as a side line. In 2014 I made some major life decisions and realised it was now or never to start trying to work for myself as my main source of income. Aged 46 I went back to University in Plymouth to do an Illustration degree. Something that wasn't available years before when I did my HNDs. Doing this was incredible and brought me back up to date with the industry. I came out with a first class Hons Degree.

I have illustrated books, designed a plethora of brochures and business material over the years but now generally specialise in black and white illustration with a natural theme running through most pieces I create. Working with pen and ink, I had subtle variations in my work to suit different genres.


Based in Torquay, Devon, England.
