Hello! I’m a burgeoning children’s book illustrator and writer. I live in north London with my husband and our lovely cat.
I started creating illustrations specifically for home decor as a creative outlet while I work on my skills and picture book ideas in the background. I’ve been marketing and selling my artwork for a little over a year now and am loving every exciting and frustrating bit of running my (very small) business. I work full time as a primary school teacher, and I spend the evenings and weekends drawing, painting, at markets or noodling around on social media.
I sell at increasingly more markets, particularly in the late spring, summer and winter, so keep an eye on my Events page; I might turn up in your neck of the woods one of these days! In the meantime, have a browse of my artwork on Etsy and Not on the High Street (see Shop section) or say hello on Twitter or Instagram (@victojeiro)

VictoriaDraws and the sea

As an artist who is hugely inspired by the natural world, in particular the sea and all it’s inhabitants, I am deeply saddened and angered by the damage we’re doing to the world’s oceans. I can’t bear the thought of a world where beautiful creatures like blue whales and hammerhead sharks no longer exist, because we have destroyed their homes.

I have been shocked at the impact our use of plastics has had on the sea. For my part in the fight against single-use plastics I have made sure I use only recyclable packaging, or packaging made from recyclable materials – even my cellophane wrapping is recyclable!

To help spread awareness of how we can do more to protect our seas I have committed to donating 10% of the profits of a number of my prints to the Marine Conservation Society. See my Etsy or Not on the High Street storefronts for more details.

Thank you for your support.

  1. Hi Victoria
    I am opening a new shop/independent market place in Godalming 45 mins from London. Our aim is to create a bricks and mortar etsy vibe! allowing the creatives to keep creating whilst we sell your goods. We are very keen to inject some life back into the high street by giving independents a platform to develop and grow. Yard Market are renting out space at a really good rate .

    I stumbled upon your cool illustrations and would love to feature them in Yard Market. If this is something you would be interested in then we would love to hear from you.

    Kind regards
    Laura
