Hello everyone! I'm Elizabeth, an author-illustrator creating fantasy novels such as The Naiad Chronicles, Silver Jill, and the upcoming series, Caimwind.
My current project, Silver Jill, is an adventure story following Lettice, a high-flying botanist hare who continues the work of her late parents by researching the mystery of Shishiki Island. This book will be illustrated with at least 140 full colour illustrations, spreads, maps, plans, designs, and anything else that works!
I'm hoping for the book to see completion near the spring/summer of 2019, and a little income from generous patrons will be an enormous and much welcome boost! In exchange, you’ll get routine updates in progress and development.
Both Silver Jill and this Patreon are suitable for all ages!
Alongside my work in Silver Jill, I also paint a little piece everyday for the world of Caimwind, a high-fantasy book about witchcraft and nature, and dragons, of course. These conceptual pieces help build an idea of the world, both for myself and for potential readers. I post these publicly on this Patreon too, so follow along for free if you would like!
I'm also working on the final book in my fantasy quartet, The Naiad Chronicles - a series involving talkative dragons, mysterious armies, elven feuds and numerous cups of tea. Oh, and cats. Quite a few cats.
Though Silver Jill will be completed with watercolours, I also use digital mediums like Photoshop for digital paintings.
