Hayley Jane Gemmell

Born in 1989 in Oxfordshire in the UK, I have always loved and cared for the natural world. I describe my natural talent for art and drawing as my ‘autistic and dyslexic gift’ which I went on to develop further by obtaining a distinction level MA in Illustration at Falmouth University. I have a scientific education in biology, zoology & ornithology. My obsession with birds, particularly parrots, is often reflected in my work.

All my artwork is hand drawn digitally using my Apple Pencil and iPad Pro tablet. I use a variety of software, including Procreate, Adobe Fresco and Adobe Illustrator to create my illustrations.

When I am not drawing or designing I spend my time with my husband and family enjoying walks, cooking, sightseeing, travelling and looking after my houseplant collection and rescue pet African grey parrot, Alfie.

Feel free to take a look at work and get in touch today.
