I’m a freelance designer & illustrator and live in lovely Brighton, UK. 

Hi, I’m Lila (pronounced Lee-la). Originally from Hertfordshire, I studied fine art at uni but have worked in illustration and graphic design for over 15 years. Owing to being busy with client design work, I haven’t always had the luxury of time to create and sell my own artwork, especially as a single parent to a young child (which has not always been an easy ride!). Luckily he is now a little less hands on, so I am finally finding a little more time to indulge my creative passions… and am really enjoying it! 

Here’s a bit more about what I get up to….5


I am an experienced illustrator working in a variety of techniques from hand drawn to digital, to printmaking and more. I work for client commissions as well as undertake personal pieces which I sell in my shop >>

I love beautiful colour, pattern and nature in particular, and my work has been featured on greetings cards, packaging, wine related materials, social media campaigns, infographics, websites and more. I love to make things vibrant and joyful. I have recently been pursuing my love of mythology and archetypes through the zodiac and tarot designs I have been creating. 

My patterns, cards and artworks have also been licensed out for use on various products from giftware to cards and homeware. 

As of 2023, I am also delighted to be starting to sell my cards, prints and gifts in a number of small independent retailers across the UK and beyond. If you are interested in becoming a retailer of my products, please contact me here >>

graphic design

I’ve been working as a professional graphic designer for over 15 years and love to craft high quality designs to ensure my clients get noticed for the right reasons. From packaging design to logos & branding, books, magazines, social media graphics, events, presentations and much more… I work closely with the UK and international wine industries, small businesses, the charity & voluntary sector, and creative industries. I particularly love working with luxury brands and products.

I work to ensure my clients are completely happy, and offer a personal approach combined with attention to detail and technical know-how. This ensures great end-results and maximises marketing potential. Read more >>

…and everything else

My amazing little boy keeps me busy, and I love many things – from cooking, printmaking and interior design, to reading, walking and of course finding time to be creative wherever I can!
