Freelance Illustrator


I am a professional freelance illustrator working from my little studio in Surrey.

Before going freelance, I had over 10 years experience working at companies as a designer & also a design manager. Over those years I learnt lots of valuable skills that I still use today as a freelancer. I am reliable & enthusiastic about turning your projects into beautiful illustrations.

"Samantha is a pleasure to work with. Creative, resourceful and self-motivated I can rely on Samantha to get things done well and on-time. Samantha picks new challenges up very quickly and can adjust her creative style to suit any brief."

If you are interested in help with a children's book, a logo for your company brand, an illustration for a website, a bespoke wedding invitation or anything else that pops to mind, I would be happy to chat to you about the best direction to go in.

Even if you just want a bit of advice or a push in the right direction, drop me a line. If I can't help, I may know someone who can.
