Lis Watkins is one of the UK's leading watercolour illustrators and her work has appeared across many Magazines, FMCG Packaging and Corporate Publications. Lis is renowned for her unique stylised landscapes, cityscapes and still life studies.
A meeting with old art college friends in September 2011 inspired me to refresh my drawing skills and I started a sketch blog with the idea of posting something online every day for a year. As I live nearby, Croydon often features – lots of inspiring buildings, landscapes and people. Nearly 3 years later my enthusiasm has continued and my daily drawing diary is still going strong.
I’m a member of the online group ‘Urbansketchers’ whose mission is to ‘show the world, one drawing at a time’ and I was recently asked to become one of their London correspondents. This means I will be able to post my sketches on their main website so I’m hoping to include lots of Croydon.
I work as an illustrator and am represented by the Lemonade Illustration agency.
