Marilyn Robertson

A really warm welcome to my home page – I’m glad you found me - and I hope you like my design work. I try hard to keep it fresh and original - so it pays to keep checking out what’s new..

Who am I and what do I do?

I’m a UK based freelance artist/illustrator working world-wide across a range of art-related consumer products. You may have seen my open edition prints on web sites in the USA UK and Germany.

Or you might have found my top-selling designs for greeting cards in stores in:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Russia and the former CIS states
  • Australia and New Zealand
  • South America

My aim

I aim to create beautiful artwork and illustrations that can be valued and enjoyed by anyone who loves the creative interplay of colour, line and form. I favour clean, uncluttered images in bold colours, but always with a subtlety of expression. In the more commercial work I often include quirky individual design elements – preferably with a dash of graphic flair. My much loved feline range, featuring ‘Jasper-the-Cat’ and his friends Thomas, Felix and Sebastian, (the ‘cats with attitude’), have been trademarked as “Catitudes TM”. With the rest of their friends they are found on a growing product range.

My background

I started drawing and painting as soon as I could hold a crayon and I’ve never stopped! After college I worked in the UK as an art teacher. And then, when my daughter, Katie, was born, I set out on a ‘long and winding road’ to establish myself as an artist/designer/illustrator. For a detailed bio check my about page.

During my career I’ve been helped by a wide-based art education including ceramics, textiles and fashion. I continue to work in these product areas as well as in Fine Art. My influences include:

  • Art Deco
  • Art Nouveau
  • The Pre-Raphaelites
  • The Impressionists

Who has used my designs

My designs have been used in many consumer products by a range of companies for example:

  • Open edition prints (aka posters) ( May- Ag )
  • Greeting cards:
    • Pictura USA,
    • Blossoms & Bows (UK)
    • ZPR (Russia)
  • Tabletop and Ceramics Pimpernel/Portmeirion)
  • Cross Stitch (Design Works Crafts USA)

What next?

Like most artist/designers I love experimenting to perfect my skills and create the next winner! Why not browse my images, including a range of exclusive limited edition prints, in the gallery and shop?
