Let's Make It Personal ...

October 10, 2023

Over the last few years I have been commissioned to illustrate some wonderful life stories by people around the world.  We can make your unique designs into framed art prints as well as postcards, wedding invitations and more.  Each artwork tells a personal story through my art, whether it's one of romance, friendship, family or survival over adversity. Here are some of my favourites ...

Illustration of Lambeth by British Travel Artist Julia Gash including the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and Big Ben

I was recently asked to create an illustration to remember the journey of a newborn baby and her family, as they spent much of her early life in St Thomas's Hospital in London, where she underwent life saving surgery over many months.  My illustration of Lambeth acts as a memory of this precious time, where their lives revolved around hospitals and the local vicinity as they waited for her to mend and recover. She did :-)

Niagara Falls illustration by Julia Gash Map Maker Extraordinaire

I love the simplicity and brightness of this illustration I created for a postcard swapping community in Canada.  Showing both sides of the Niagara Falls and of course, the all important post box, it is lively, fun and captures the excitement of swapping postcards.

Love Story Illustration Personal Commission Art by Julia Gash British Artist

Illustrating love stories is both a joy and a privilege. That someone lets me into their life to create an illustration which tells the story of when they met  and key moments of their romantic journey, is very humbling. Here's one of my favourites. I love the colour scheme chosen by Elena and Flavio and the addition of their cute little baby: Allegra.

Travels in China Illustration by Julia Gash British Artist

A big holiday can also be remembered forever through art. This illustration I created for a customer to commemorate a holiday that her and her partner had in China inspired me to want to visit!
