Storyboard artist, illustrator, concept artist at Louise Haywood Illustration and Design

Areas of expertise:


Hello! I'm Louise! I am an Illustrator, designer, storyboard artist and animator based in Cardiff and Essex/London

I cover and illustrate books and promotional material, create storyboards and designs for companies and production, create small loop animations and so much more. I have worked for Aardman animations, Cloudcastle, Universal as well as creating my own short film!

I love to work both traditionally and digitally and my style of working is very hands on, I ask a lot of questions and send a lot of sketches! I can work in a variety of art styles.

I have also done some work on TV and film as an extra or background artist on a few projects. I am really interested in learning all I can about film but my heart lies in traditional animation, especially the 1960's era of Disney, such as 101 Dalmatians and the Jungle Book.

Drawing from life and nature is a must for me. I am part of a local gardening community to help grow food in other peoples gardens and teach others about the importance of connecting with nature.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me I look forward to getting to know you too!
