Live Illustration

Do you need a tangible result at the end of your conference, event or meeting?

  • Capture your conversations
  • Visually mind map your ideas
  • Tell the story of your company
  • Connect with your clients
  • Create a snapshot to summarise your event
  • Finish with a piece of art on canvas for your walls!

I provide illustrations and visual note taking during meetings, conferences or events using high contrast inks to sketch the journey of the conversation as it happens. Live drawing provides a fresh new way to see your ideas, structure your mission statement or capture your team away days. My work results in a lively cartoon-like sketch including icons, motifs, portraits, quotes and logos to create a piece of artwork live at the discussion. Your audience or participants can request imagery to be added and build the finished piece together as a team or I simply listen in at your event and scribble away!

Turning complicated concepts int
o visuals that are easy to understand, discuss, share and explain. The piece will be tailored to represent your company culture, style, vision and branding.

Why choose live sketching?

  • Prototype new ideas or services for your company
  • Use as a visual evaluation tool
  • Gather customer and client feedback
  • Brainstorm at a staff innovation day
  • Create a visual timeline at your AGM

Live sketching is a great way to engage your audience, share the results with your clients or create a buzz for your guests. Most importantly it helps you to communicate your message and you keep the final outcome to put up at your office. The finished piece can be digitally photographed and used for mouse mats, posters, reports, campaigns, websites or publications. A time-lapse video of the artwork can also be edited for you upon request. Please contact me for further information and rates.

Client testimonials:

Jenny did an amazing piece of live sketching for us to capture a conference/development day we were involved with. We asked Jenny to work with us because we loved her artistic style, and the broader community work that she does as an independent artist. Jenny was great to work with, clear, organised and professional as well as been a really great, positive person to be around for the day. We were blown away with the way she captured the day in art form and would highly recommend. – Kelly Ng. Director at Good Wolf People Ltd.

Jenny was able to provide a fantastic representation for the NNEdPro 4th International Summit on Medical and Public Health Nutrition Education and Research in Cambridge on 19th July 2018. The artwork brought together views from attendees from across the globe, covering the various aspects from farm to medical nutrition education to fork. Was most appreciated by the delegates, collaborators and stakeholders. Thank you Jenny !
-Dr Minha Rajput-Ray, Medical Director, Nned Pro.

Jenny supported our Staff Conference team building event. Our leadership team decided to ask our people to explore and describe what our key corporate values meant to them.
Jenny was truly excellent in enshrining their language in powerful and impactful visual graphics. All of our team loved how Jenny just allowed the conversation to flow, whilst astutely distilling and capturing their ideas in her modern and engaging style of artwork. We plan to have Jenny back to support us on developing our thinking on different topics.
-Elizabeth Vega, CEO Informed Solutions.

Jenny joined the kick off of our young high talents development programme in the role of ‘resident artist’. Jenny was able to listen and draw what was happening in the room, culminating in a comprehensive, vibrant canvas for us to keep that captures all of the key points from our speakers. – Kay Rolandi, Talent Manager, Parker.

Working with Jenny was an amazing experience. She helped our academic department identify the themes connecting our individual research interests. Her work is colourful, insightful and engaging. Her approach is humble and yet invigorating.
-Jenna Ward, Associate Dean, University of Leicester.
