This is me, Eleanor Patrick.

I live in Northumberland, UK, nearly into Scotland. Very rural, very beautiful. The most inspiring place I’ve ever lived…


…and sometimes ‘our’ owl disturbs the outside light.

When I’m not making illustrations and designing patterns, I play music, read crime novels and love working with children and/or words – this combination is magical. Perhaps I’ve never grown up!

Sometimes I sketch very roughly in biro or soluble ink when out and about…

…and other times I’m gripped by realism (these are done in alcohol Promarkers)…

After being a freelance writer and editing a journal for many years, I’m absolutely great with deadlines and getting on with clients and doing my best for them in light of what their business needs from me.
