Mentoring opportunities

 

Every year, I offer mentoring opportunities to a handful of individuals. This 

tailored mentoring scheme was devised to help budding illustrators make their next steps in the publishing industry. The framework centres around portfolio consultations and one-to-one mentoring, offering professional critique, guidance and support. There are three levels of participation to choose from, with varying levels of commitment and engagement, depending on individual needs. Sessions can be arranged face-to-face or via online platforms such
as Zoom and Skype.

Testimonials

Gemma Tribick

Illustrator and Designer

Holly is simply a wonderful mentor.
Her wealth of knowledge in the industry
is super inspiring. She takes such a huge interest in you, to the point where your art obsessions become hers too.

Holly always has millions of ideas to share with you that gets your creative mind buzzing, our conversations really help me find my way out of areas where I might be stuck or just in need of a new perspective.

Her passion for illustration and story-telling is contagious, when you work with her anything seems possible and there’s always a character of story just round the corner!

Liah O'Brien

Illustrator

Holly has a true passion for illustration and

is a constant inspiration to any aspiring illustrator. Having her as a mentor has allowed me to refine my skills and style, which I have previously been unsure of.

 

She always encourages and believes in me when in the times I don’t believe in myself. She actively encourages me to take up new and sometimes daunting opportunities that I would not have had the confidence to do before, which have always been amazing and incredibly helpful experiences. It is an honour to have Holly as a mentor, not only in my journey in the illustration world but also in life!

Holly is an incredible person to learn under, her positive energy and mentality is always contagious and she’s never not pushing you to go that little but further and grow that little bit more. My confidence shot through the roof thanks to her, and I learned so much about becoming the creative I want to be.
