ruthlily draws: Ruth Lillian Foulis

I am a twenty something Edinburgh born illustrator living in Glasgow. I spend a lot of time both in the city and by the sea up on the west coast of Scotland on the Morvern peninsula. I draw inspiration from the sea, A LOT, so you'll see plenty of waves and seals and boats and atmospheric skies!

I studied Visual Communication at Glasgow School of Art, specialising in illustration. I also spent a semester abroad at OCAD in Toronto, where I found a love for indie comics. I graduated in 2012 and after a masters at Glasgow University, I now teach back at GSA in the Design, History, and Theory department.

My work for sale on etsy consists of illustrated cards, badges, totes and more inspired by the sea and the city. Illustrated and designed in Glasgow, Scotland by Ruth Lillian Foulis, using inky washes and paper cutting to create atmospheric, colour filled, playful illustrations professionally printed onto greetings cards and other gifts.
