About Me

Hello, my name is Layla, and I'm an animal artist originally from Brighton, England. 

 

It wasn't until I moved to France with my husband in 2011 that my passion for creativity was ignited again. I hadn't created anything since I was a child. I fell in love with graphite pencils and started creating pencil portraits for people. Several years later, I went self-employed in 2016 in order to grow my small business and provide for my family. In 2017 our son was born, the 2nd bundle to join our family! He decided to surprise us with a little extra...an extra chromosome to be exact. Having a child with Down Syndrome really opened my eyes to the more important things, and to show gratitude for the little things in life that make you happy. This inspired me to go to my love of nature and animals in bright colours. Now my art can be found all over the world!

My Work

I love to create art saturated in lots of colours. Especially in my favourite colours of bright pinks, purples, and greens. I use only the best coloured pencils and pastels on professional artist paper when creating pieces...so that if kept in the right conditions...it will last you a lifetime!

There is nothing I love more (apart from my family) than to create and be close to nature. So, it brings me great joy to draw what makes me happy, and to bring happiness to others by re-connecting them to nature through my art.

My Studio

This is my studio in Normandy, France. My little creative corner; where the views of the countryside outside my window bursts with inspiration! Every season a different colour. My wonderful husband renovated this space on our old farm to make me this beautiful studio...my true happy place.

From here, I lovingly create art and package them up with the utmost care, before shipping them out on their safe journey to you.
