HI - I'M OCEAN!

I am an illustrator & aspiring children's author based in a little old town in the South of Wales. I studied BA (Hons) Illustration at Swansea College of Art.

 

My illustration work has found a home in numerous children's books, magazines, packaging design, as well as home wear and stationery!

 

I love experimenting with traditional materials, but my favourite media are gouache, coloured pencil & cut paper. I enjoy combining this with digital art. I really enjoy story telling, whether through visual or written narrative. I have written various children's books including 'Dina the Dinosaur Hunter' which are awaiting the perfect publisher to help share these wonderful, fun and imaginative stories with the world. If you would like to take a look at my stories, please contact beth@plumpuddingillustration.com 

I also run my own online store, where I make and sell a variety of stationery, jewellery and home ware with my own designs and ship them all over the globe! For enquiries about stock or collaborations, drop me a line at oceanhughesart@gmail.com 

When I'm not making art, I'm off exploring the beautiful Welsh landscapes, playing piano, or pottering around in the garden. 

It's my dream to someday live in a little old cottage surrounded by forest, have my own pottery studio, and keep on making art until the end of time! I couldn't imagine anything more perfect!
