Art & Illustration


hello illustration sketching with bunny slippers and a beanbag by Nicola Schofield

With a firm foundation in freelance illustration and fine art I am currently working on several picture book ideas and seeking representation. I am a member of SCBWI and the Society of Visual Storytelling. Whether working in watercolour or digital media I love mark making and creating quirky, expressive images.

I am also an admin for the Reading chapter of Urban Sketchers, where we document in our sketchbooks everything from theatre productions and local events to the everyday spaces around us. One month we’ll be sketching the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in rehearsal and the next month it could be gardeners at our local community allotment or quiet scenes at bus stops.
