About me

About me

evelyn-sinclair-award350.jpgI'm Evelyn Sinclair and I'm an illustrator/artist based in Kendal, Cumbria. I have over 20 years experience in producing illustrations for everything from food and cosmetic packaging, to interpretation panels, exhibitions and countless logos, leaflets and brochures.

I'm an ex-student of Glasgow School of Art and graduated with a first class (hons) degree. I was offered a job at my degree show and immediately joined a branch of Ogilvy and Mather in Glasgow. After several years working for high profile clients from all around Scotland, I moved to Kendal in the Lake District.

Vimeo-evelyn-sinclair.jpgHaving worked for several companies in Kendal, I set up my own company in 2000.

In 2014 I was shortlisted for the prestigious Association of Illustrators Awards for my illustrated map of Barrow Park (pictured right), created for an interpretation panel for Cumbria Wildlife Trust.

I also produce fine artwork - see my artist website here.
