Sally Barnett - Designer

Somerset, United Kingdom

I am an Illustrator and Graphic Artist who specialises in Fantasy and Children's Illustration, book cover design and editorial illustration.

Overview

Presently studying my third year of BA (Hons) Design and Illustration. I work predominantly in pen and ink. But also, watercolour, oil pastels and digital illustration.
I have exhibited my illustration artwork in Somerset, UK (Frome and Bath) and I enjoy reading and discovering weird and wonderful short stories that have yet to be illustrated. I love illustrating the narrative, from children's fairytale books to album covers. I am happy to consider any creative challenge that comes my way and especially collaboration or assistance with art or writing projects.

Trained in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and In-Design, this training has also helped with my freelance technical work in web design. Self taught in Web Design and eMarketing, I have designed several websites and graphic content for clients, as well as freelance photography for websites.
I volunteer my spare time to local non-funded charities and organisations, including Black Swan Arts Centre and The Frome Tunnels Team Project in Frome, Somerset.

I pride myself on a friendly and professional approach to my client's needs and I am fully committed to ensuring my client gets the best service, whilst having a good working relationship with me.
I am passionate about illustration and always happy to help you turn your dreamed ideas into reality.

Freelance Illustrator and Graphic Artist

Sally Barnett

June, 2013 – Present (over 3 years)

I am studying BA (Hons) Illustration and Design at University of Hertfordshire and in my third year. I began freelancing for illustration, graphic design and web design, after leaving my last permanent role as Highways Engineer for a local Authority. I have worked for clients by creating book illustrations and designing book covers, both in the South West England and internationally.
