London based illustrator Josie Shenoy creates intricate illustrations drawing on themes of nature, pattern, traditional decorative arts and a love of storytelling.
Drawing is at the heart of her creative practice. 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 of greeting cards and giclée art prints which she sells online and to trade. Josie’s work has also been translated into collections for a diverse range of products including lighting, kitchen linens, ceramics, stationery and homeware.
Most recently, Josie has illustrated popular ranges for Anthropologie, Crabtree & Evelyn, Royal Gardens at Highgrove and the British Museum, and her prints and cards stock Foyles, Harrods, Somerset House and many other well-known shops and museums across London. She is currently illustrating her first non-fiction children’s book, due for publication in 2018.
