ATS Illustration
Freelance illustration and design, Both for single artwork and commercial design work

I am a freelance illustrator based in the gorgeous city of Bath.
When im not at my day job in a of so fabulous toy shop I am constantly creating new ideas and bringing them to life.

I mostly work with ink and watercolour mediums blending a traditional style of artwork with a more modern looser feel, I love to do fine detail work when I can.

I have a passion for animals (My most favourite thing to paint and draw) I love to cook up these epic adventures they might be on, This is mostly inspired by alot of beautifully illustrated children’s books.

So if you need just one piece for that special someone or if you want to re-invent your brand, drop me a email and lets get some ideas to paper!

Our childrens’ after school and weekend art clubs provide a space for children to explore the world guided by their imagination and expand their curiosity through creative practice. Our pre-school classes explore arts, craft, singing and yoga in the earliest years when the imagination is starting to develop its full potential.
Our shop sells art supplies, artisan gifts and cards, and The Art Cohort clothing and accessories range.
