London-based illustrator and designer Josie Shenoy graduated from the University of Westminster in 2012 with a First Class degree in Illustration. Josie is very much inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement and South Asian patterns and textiles. She creates intricate illustrations drawing on themes of nature, pattern, traditional decorative arts and a love of storytelling.
Through a combination of detailed pencil drawing, collage and traditional print methods fused with digital processes, Josie aims to create kaleidoscopic compositions in a palette of vintage colours and textures. Alongside freelance illustration commissions, Josie designs her own collections for print and textiles. Josie’s work has been translated into collections for lighting, stationery, prints and greeting cards.
Clients and stockists include: Anthropologie, The British Museum, Design Museum, Imperial War Museum, Historical Royal Palaces, Houses of Parliament, Somerset House and the Wellcome Collection. Josie illustrates in her studio amongst a community of talented designer-makers at Cockpit Arts, Deptford.
