My Cover Illustration for Lionheart Magazine
I'm excited to unveil my very first cover illustration, for the fifth issue of the lovely Lionheart Magazine!
"This is the Home issue. Writing, art, books, nature, family, travel, illustration and photography are all used to explore the meaning of the word home, resulting in a deeply thoughtful and truly beautiful issue. Issue five features the home tour and interview with The Pippa and Ike Show’s, Lianne, a Dutch native who has transformed her Victorian Bristol home with her husband and children to a bright, open space, full of imagination, play and folk/European chic!
We also meet House of Habit, a family of six who embrace summer and discovery in California, together with their beloved RV. The photography is by Denise Bovee, and it’s very special. There is an interview with NYC based five-piece band, Lucius a melodic, 60s-inspired indie pop band you can hear, here.
Faye West explores sketching and life drawing as a real human connection. Hannah Bullivant has moved from London to the country with her family, how has this changed her vision of home? Jess Furseth recommends some inspiring books and interviews the artist, Alicia Eggert. Olivia talks home style, Lara Watson finds home is travelling, Lou Archell finds it outdoors and Lottie Storey builds a map around home.
There’s also so much more… not to forget the absolutely incredible cover by Holly Exley, which alone deserves a frame. Hope you love this issue as much as we have loved putting it together. Home and heart, you know, they go together pretty well."
