My ethos as an illustrator is to incorporate a drop of magic into every piece. I am highly influenced and inspired by the charm and magic of fairy tales, fantasy and the way that an illustration or image can open up a window into an alternate universe. I enjoy creating pop-up style pieces and scenes infused with lighting to create vivid and eye-catching designs to entice the imagination of children and adults alike.

I have chosen to display a selection of my projects which I think clearly demonstrate this belief and feeling, that an illustration isn’t just a drawing, but is a way of visualising to others a second world that they can explore through the use of imagination, dreams, a childlike belief, and of course ‘a drop of magic’.

Tamsin’s stunning visuals reveal the unique beauty of children’s fairy tales as well as the often sinister side of these stories. I love the play of light and dark that brings the characters to life, and powerfully captures the magic that sustains these stories in imaginations long after childhood has passed.
