Below: I was commissioned by Wellcome Images to produce a series of illustrations to show the variations of the human pelvis. These illustrations were created using Adobe Illustrator’s gradient mesh only.
Anne Corless Artist & Designer
I enjoy working in the Creative Arts as an Artist and Designer, Digital Artist, Illustrator and Writer. I also love doing Art Demonstrations and teaching Art Workshops!It is fun to be able to create art for different reasons. I love the technical challenges of my work as an illustrator where I am often asked to visually represent complex technical information. This requires a knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and skills in a variety of art media from the traditional (pencil, charcoal, paints etc) to computer graphics. I draw and paint every day; whether for exhibitions, gallery shows or on commission. Working as a designer is a challenge I also enjoy as I help a client visualise and then realise their dream. Writing is pure joy. My favourite subjects to draw and paint? I love figurative artwork and painting portraits, I am passionate about my work as an animal and wildlife artist and I adore botanical art!
A recent lovely recommendation of my artwork!:
“We needed some top quality medical illustrations for a high profile popular publication – and we needed it “yesterday”! I still can’t believe our good fortune in finding Anne Corless! She is an absolute delight to work with: gifted to the hilt, extremely knowledgeable and – most importantly – proactive. She produced exactly what we needed, responding quickly and positively to every suggestion from our team. The result is phenomenal.”
