London based illustrator Josie Shenoy creates intricate illustrations drawing on themes of nature, pattern, traditional decorative arts and a love of storytelling.

Drawing is at the heart of her creative practice. Through a combination of detailed pencil drawing, collage and traditional print methods fused with digital processes, Josie aims to create kaleidoscopic compositions in a romantic palette of vintage colours and textures.

Most recently, Josie has illustrated popular ranges for Anthropologie, Crabtree & Evelyn and the British Museum, and has stocked Foyles, Harrods, and many other well-known shops and museums across London.

Her first picture book for children, The National Archives: The Buildings That Made London, was published with Bloomsbury in 2018 and was shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards at Somerset House.
