Design Spotlight: Angela Jolliffe

July 3, 2014

Our Design Spotlight falls today on new GCU  artist Angela Joliffe who joined in March 2014 −  her style is very cute!


I am an illustrator based in Norwich, England.

I began my self-employed journey through various types of commercial commissions, craft markets and framed exhibitions.  I have illustrated children’s picture books, board books and Children’s Bibles, greetings cards, magazines, calendars, and for the internet.

I enjoy creating characters for illustrated stories.  Children’s books being my main passion.  I also have had the privilege of creating crazy painted books with very young image makers in schools.

I love to illustrate greetings cards. They have so much potential for images to convey so many ideas in so many different circumstances. I have selected this card, “A wonderful Friend”, as I am so grateful for all the friends in my life. My hope is that friends on receiving this would feel very special, valued and celebrated.

This card style is a simple style with an outline. You can see variations of my illustration style if you visit my website.

I often use rich bright colors in my work, aiming to make my illustrations fun, to delight people and make them smile. My work is hand rendered, often using water-soluble crayons and other suitable Materials. Illustrations for cards may then be scanned and sometimes added to, to create further unique variations.

I am looking forward to adding further designs.
