My main role these day is as a community builder and founder of Handmade in Norway. A position that I thrive in. It keeps me on my toes and challenges me on ever level. I utilise my 20 something years of experience as a designer and channel it in to giving my fellow creatives a boost.

But once a creative, always a creative. So here's what I do for fun!

This is me!

Brit that loves living in Oslo. I've been here since 2005 and there's no place I would rather be. I've been illustrating since before I left University, freelancing to pay for the luxury of a diploma. I worked as an in-house designer for many years. I've been a packaging designer, a products designer, a print designer, an illustrator. And now I am the proud founder of Handmade in Norway. This business brings out the best of, and allows me to use all the skills I have collected over the years to promote and guide other creatives to build their own creative businesses.

Illustrating is a real escape for me. It's my happy place. Below you will see some examples of my designs. All are created in Adobe Illustrator. These are the things that keep me up at night, because once I get started I just can't stop!

BOTANICALS

This ever-growing series of illustrations celebrates the natural wonders that we can find in our own back yard.  From poppies to a simple daisy, there is magnificent beauty in the smallest of natures creations.

All illustrations are created in Adobe Illustrator.

A study of creatures, great and small. In this series I have often had to create my own brushes in Illustrator to get the effect that I want.

My brushes can be bought at https://crella.net/store/handmade-in-norway/
