Young il­lus­tra­tor draws on her tal­ent

Rossendale Free Press - - Obituaries -

A BUD­DING il­lus­tra­tor is hop­ing to make her mark on the de­sign world af­ter un­veil­ing her first ma­jor com­mis­sion.

El­lie Gar­ner, from Rams­bot­tom, has come a long way since draw­ing on her own bed­room walls for fun – now peo­ple pay her to draw on theirs.

She has re­vealed her stun­ning de­signs, which feature on the walls of the Evolve beauty sa­lon in Eden­field.

The 25-year-old, who lives on Rochdale Road, says that friends asked her to draw de­signs on their walls af­ter see­ing her hand­i­work.

El­lie said: “All of a sud­den, my in­box went mad – but I’m re­ally en­joy­ing it.

“What started as a labour of love has be­come an ad­dic­tion and has led me to work with an ex­ten­sive list of clients.

“I do can­vasses for peo­ple, not just walls - I can draw on any­thing!

Cre­ativ­ity runs in El­lie’s fam­ily as her sis­ter, Hay­ley Gar­ner, is one half of a well-known graf­fiti-artist duo, No­mad Clan.

She says that she is look­ing for­ward to work­ing in more of­fices and busi­nesses soon.

She added: “It took about three days non-stop to fin­ish the work in the sa­lon.

“Once I start, I can’t stop - I re­ally en­joy it.”
