Family and Pet Portrait / Caricatures. See my Etsy page for details.

Jules writes and illustrates children's picture books, as well as illustrating many prints - and making custom pet and family portraits for customers across the world. She is inspired by colour, light and nature and spends much of her time pondering what Long Tailed Tits are thinking about.

Jules' books are suitable for children aged 3+, and are a fun, slightly eccentric look at life - from Vincent the Vegetarian Vampire Bat who hates the sight of blood, to Fidget, the owl who won't eat owl food.

Jules Marriner was born in Buckinghamshire in the late 1960's, but has never let this hold her back. She started off training as a fashion designer, but soon discovered she was dreadful at this. After making sprout smoothies in Australia for 6 months, she studied at University for a Degree in Illustration and had an epiphany. She fell in love with children's picture books!

It was at Uni that she realised that she wanted to spend the days drawing animals doing unlikely things. After a spell in London, she moved to the Isle of Wight which was much more animal friendly, what with all the Red Squirrels and Orang-Utans and started writing and illustrating books for children.

It was the books which led Jules into pet portraits, and then by popular demand, family portraits.  She loves nothing more than the spend the afternoon drawing someone's beloved pooch or llama and loves the feedback she gets from such projects. You can check out her Etsy page for examples.
