Watercolour

Blending physical pigment to tell stories of whimsical worlds or science research. Or both.

I cannot recommend Marie highly enough. Within a few days, and with only a general idea to work from, Marie created a number of sketches to illustrate her ideas for our cover artwork. All of her sketches were excellent; it was challenging choosing between them! We selected the sketch that best captured the concept we wanted to depict, and Marie then created a polished version based on our feedback. Marie discussed all elements of the artwork with us, to ensure that the scientific content was being accurately represented. She also (very quickly) made a number of small tweaks when we requested changes to the artwork. The cover artwork was finalised well within the agreed timeframe, and we are very happy with the final product. Marie was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her again on future projects.
