My enthusiasm for drawing,painting and stories has pushed me forward into a career of illustrating books as a freelance illustrator. I have always been interested in the text/image relationship and fascinated by the extra dimension of interpretation it creates. My illustrations aim to depict emotion, feeling and connections between characters through facial expression and body language.
I am based in Swansea, UK. www.dianerees.com My illustrations are mainly hand drawn in pencil and produced in the medium of watercolour and graphite pencil.I also do black and white illustrations using pen and ink.
