I want to tell you about a fantastically talented artist, Lorrie from Illusio Creative.

Lorrie is a UK based artist who can turn her hand at anything visual, it would seem! Photography, graphic design, digital art, painting and web design.

I commissioned Lorrie to design me a really clean, uncluttered banner for my various websites, and you are looking at the results both above (blog) and below:

I’m so pleased with it! She did everything I asked, giving me a slightly different part of a bracelet I made in each banner which identifies Rachel Lucie as a brand, but also gives some difference. Simple, but effective. She also gave me lots of advice about my blog layout and website.

Lorrie is now doing off the shelf wordpress and blogger designs in her new etsy shop, Illusio Designs, such as the one I particularly love below:

To celebrate over 1000 facebook fans, Lorrie is having a blog giveaway, giving you the chance to own an original drawing! You really should enter, except, actually, I have so don’t because I don’t want you to win!

So, if you are looking from anything from original art to a custom designed visual image for your brand or blog, check out Illusio!

Check out Illusio’s website, etsy shop for art and blog themes, and you can also find her on twitter and facebook
