Tilly Thornborrow creates hand illustrated 100% FSC certified paper goods that are printed in-house and in small batches to avoid any unnecessary waste.
“My practice is very traditional. My work always starts with a pencil sketch, and is then hand-painted in watercolours. Although this technique isn’t as flexible as digital illustration, I feel much more connected to it as an artist. Working in watercolour can be unpredictable, and sometimes uncontrollable, often changing completely throughout the process. This may sometimes be frustrating, but it’s also the thing I love most about it: it’s delicate and soft, whilst still having the ability to be rich and vivid in colour.”
