About this artist
Hello, my name is Blossom and i was born in Cardiff in 1984. I grew up on a lovely little coastal town called Penarth just outside Cardiff in South Wales. I now live in Market Harborough, another little town outside of Leicester with my lovely husband and two kitties.
I have always been creative and wanted to draw as long as I can remember , but my early drawings that hung on my nans wall with pride don’t look so impressive all these years later! If i had to describe my work I would say it was quirky, cute, dreamy and influenced by Japanese Kawaii style. I am a real nature lover and animals are the feature in most of my work.
I studied Illustration In Swansea Institute of Art and Design. My favourite medium to paint in is watercolour but I really just love to draw with my trusty 0.3mm mechanical pencil! I love to paint on wood and other natural surfaces aswell as dabbling in Photoshop a little to really bring my creations to I life!
I also love to work with ceramics and aim to feature cute little ceramic characters in my work from now on. I also really love yoga and curling up on the sofa with a good film and my two lovely cats, Pierre and Baloo. I find it too hard to pick a favourite film, but my all time favourite tv series is Lost. When I am working I love nothing more than to listen to a good audiobook, be it a romantic comedy, mystery or scary story by Stephen King!
If I wasn’t an illustrator I would definitely love to work with animals, I would love to work in a zoo or travel the world trying to help endangered or sick animals. One of my life goals is to some day visit the Chengdu Panda Sanctuary in China and look after a little baby panda!
I really hope you enjoy looking at my work as much as I enjoyed creating it!
