Who we are
I’m Ellie and I run Ellie Smith Illustration.
My work has always been drawn by hand and most often from life. At uni my tutor made me go walking in the Yorkshire countryside, sketching nature and animals. This developed my loose yet closely-observed style and I haven’t looked back.
I sell a range of prints of my drawings and from handmade silk screen prints to high quality digital. Subject matter? Pubs and other businesses, nature, bespoke illustrations of your favourite places, machinery and appliances, food and craft beer.
I’m inspired by the recognisable, which can mean anything from local pubs to animals, iconic toasters to food. I don’t draw people or make-believe, but almost everything else goes! I love to find humour in my work and embrace the wonky lines of on-location drawing.
Commission me! I do House Portraits, favourite pubs and wedding venues. Email me for more information or go to www.ellie-draws.co.uk
