Custom artwork for your next creative project

Illustration

From simple vector drawings to realistic, detailed pencil sketches.

Every project begins as a concept on paper. Drawing from custom creations and ideas lets the concept evolve and develop naturally.

I love creating commissioned pieces of artwork for peoples' homes or office spaces.

Illustrations can also be created digitally for use as printed or online material to complement your company's branding.

Fine Art

Working with oil or acrylic paint on canvas, as well as watercolour on paper, I get so much joy from painting and love discussing new ideas for commissioned pieces.

I often draw inspiration from our local bird life and unspoilt landscapes, while most recently I have been introducing botanical subjects to my sketches and paintings.

Graphic Design

Hand-drawn and digital work go hand-in-hand. What starts as a sketch can be refined digitally and applied across a multitude of print and digital branding collateral.

I love designing from scratch, whether it be for a custom logo, wedding invitation, handwritten signage or larger projects such as annual reports and complete brand identity packages.

A little about me

I’m Hilary, a freelance illustrator and designer working from my home studio in Raglan.

Art has always been a big passion of mine. Combining this with experience in corporate and agency environments within the creative industry, I have found a love for using traditional methods of fine art with digital platforms. I am happy to offer these services for clients with businesses of all sizes.

My weeks are spent producing work for a range of client projects, as well as continually developing my craft of hand-drawing and painting whenever possible. My paintings are currently exhibited and selling through local galleries in Raglan and Orewa, New Zealand.
