Who are you:
Gemma Randall is a freelance illustrator and art director based in Bristol UK.
What do you do:
I draw and paint sometimes by hand and rather more often via my Mac. I like to create striking semi real portraits mostly. I seem to be doing quite a few dogs at the moment but it's all fun work.
How did you start:
I used to work in the art department for TV but decided I wanted more control on my artwork and dreamed of working solo. I took the leap last year and it's been the best career move I've made so far!
A Personal statement about you or your work:
[I hate these] I'm a country girl who loves to draw. My work is quite varied but I really enjoy portraits, sometimes the subject dictates the style and materials I use.
I love my Mac but I am equally happy with a good pencil and my sketchbook. I love what I do and even when it gets tough I never want to go back to a proper job!
