Owen Arts Ltd

Freelance illustrator, storyboard artist, concept visualiser, cartoonist & graphic designer.

Illustration Work

My illustration work reflects my ability to develop a variety of styles in different mediums both traditional and digital. I have illustrated a number of books both fiction and non-fiction but I particularly love illustrating children’s books; one in particular is currently ‘in development’ to become an animated film, which I can’t wait to see. I also illustrate for advertising and marketing projects including character design, logos and infographics.

If you think I might be able to help you, please get in touch to discuss your requirements. It would be great to work with you!

Visualising & Storyboard Work

I began my career in fast-paced art departments in London advertising agencies, becoming a freelancer over 20 years ago and continuing to work with some very creative designers and art directors creating storyboards and concept visuals for TV, Point Of Sale and Direct Marketing as well as live event visuals and creative workshop sketching across the world.

Painting Works

Living in the beautiful Devon countryside I am surrounded by inspiration wherever I look; from the intertwining fields & hedgerows and stunning coastal walks both North and South to the awe-inspiring Victorian industrial buildings and sprawling farm buildings. I paint with a limited palette to attempt to paint that feeling of the ‘first impression’ where the juxtaposition of colour and form catch the eye and the imagination. My inspiration comes from artists such as Van Gogh and Kandinsky as well as illustrators like Arthur Rackham and the designer Abram Games.

If you are interested in purchasing an original painting or would like to talk about commissioning a piece of work, please get in touch to have a chat. It would be great to talk with you! Prints are available on my Etsy page.

Creative Workshops

When I tell people that I teach painting and drawing the most commonly heard statement is ‘oh I can’t draw…! It would be wasted on me!’ However I think if you can write then you can draw. It’s not always about reproducing a photographic likeness, it’s about your interpretation and I think it’s my job to help my students to find their  way of interpreting what they see or feel and learn how to discard any concerns about what other people may or may not think about it.
