About Skantlyn

Skantlyn

I illustrate fun and colourful designs for products!

Hi I'm Liz and I am a graphic designer and illustrator, living about 10 mins from the seaside in Cornwall.
I have always lived in Cornwall and love it! I find so much inspiration from what I see, which often reflects in my work.
I graduated from Falmouth University in 2008 and took the brave step of setting up my graphic design business 'designthoughts' in 2009, and haven't looked back since. A couple of years ago I decided to launch a range of illustrations under my name Liz May designs, which I have recently rebranded to Skantlyn. It features a range of hand drawn and computer drawn illustrations which I place onto anything such as mugs, placemats, bookmarks, greetings cards and hand painted designs on tote bags (they make great gifts and have always been a best seller)

I live with my fiance and dog in a little house and my dog is a Springer spaniel cross with a lurcher, so he is affectionately known as a Splurcher, he gives me lots of inspiration for illustrating too. :)

To not sound too clique I have been drawing, painting and creating since I was very little, and very lucky to know that it was something creative that I wanted to do when I 'grew up' I love what I do, especially working for myself, as I get to work with and meet fantastic people.

I often do local design and craft fairs and hope to broaden out to more national design fairs within the next year or so.

Fascinating fact! Skantlyn means 'Pattern' in the Cornish language.
