Welcome to the website of artist Jane Goodfellow

Jane Goodfellow

A very versatile artist, I can draw or paint pretty much anything, in a wide variety of media – from biro to watercolours, pencil to oils, and more.

My early career in graphic design had me designing logos and all printed materials, doing commercial illustrations, drawing and painting portraits – still a favourite occupation – and illustrating children’s books.

More recently, I’ve been commissioned to do landscapes, portraits, children’s books, logos, and occasional abstracts.

If you have a favourite scene you’d like a painting or drawing of, a photo of a beloved pet or person that would look good, say, as a pencil drawing (or in any other medium), a children’s book that you’d like illustrated, or any commercial illustration you need done, contact me to discuss what you’d like and for me to work out a quote. Or browse through the work for sale – and note that Gift Vouchers are available to be redeemed against the cost of a portrait.

Happy browsing!
