Ink and watercolour artworks celebrating rural life within our British countryside.
Yorkshire born and bred, Eleanor Tomlinson is an award-winning artist & illustrator based in Willerby, East Yorkshire. Her artwork is inspired by the local countryside she has grown up amongst, including all the wildlife found within it; great and small.
Working quickly & loosely with ink & watercolour allows Eleanor to capture energy and movement as she combines traditional, well-loved subjects with a contemporary, illustrative twist.
Eleanor has been selling her artworks and taking on commissions since her mid-teens which travelled across the UK and the world. Her creative business and brand started on an overcrowded kitchen table at her family home in 2011 when she was 14 years old, starting with a new yearly limited edition Christmas card range. Over the years, whilst studying at school and university, she has increased and developed her designs and expanded into stationery, limited edition prints and most recently her homeware range.
Following the end of her Illustration course at˜her Degree Show in June 2019, where Eleanor˜received˜the Arts Entrepreneur Award 2019, Eleanor went straight into working full-time for her creative business. She later˜graduated from York St John˜University˜with a First- Class˜Honours˜degree in Illustration at York Minster in November 2019. At her graduation Eleanor was awarded 3 awards for her academic and creative achievements; the Art Undergraduate Final Project/ Dissertation Prize, Art Undergraduate Programme Prize and the School of Art, Design and Computer Science Prize.
We are proud to work with leading British manufacturers & suppliers, with the majority of Eleanor’s products being designed, printed & manufactured all in Yorkshire.
