Since graduating with an Illustration BA from the University for the Creative Arts, I have been working as a freelance illustrator in London. I work with watercolour, ink and gouache and am attracted to any project that gives me the chance to tell stories with pictures.  In 2014 I completed an MA in Illustration at the University of Arts, Camberwell.  I’m inspired by myths, Renaissance painting and my surroundings, amongst other things.

Clients inlcude FlipGroup, LFW The Daily, Dyfi Poetry Festival and Zizzi Restaurants.

I’m open to all types of illustration work so for information, to see more or just for why-not, please e-mail me at eleanor.percival@hotmail.com

As well as selling giclée prints, greetings cards, etchings and jewellery in my etsy shop, some of my work is for sale at BRIXI in Brixton Village Market and Green & Stone of Chelsea.

    Your work is very detailed and provides intense feelings – just what an illustrator should be, you should get commissions.
    It would be interesting to see more cheerful and comic work.

    I particularly enjoy the quiet intensity of your images, your immersion in the worlds of your characters. I can be with them and their experience through the medium of your images and imagery.
