Celia Hart


I enjoy working with design companies and publishers to create illustrations or images for projects and I can supply the required digital files. If you would like to discuss a new project, please contact me.

Publishing and editorial

For my illustrations I work in linocut and woodcut before scanning the hand-burnished prints and working on them further in Photoshop. In the photo are cover illustrations for Ben Law's books Woodland Craft published by Guild of Master Craftsmen; The Almanac - a seasonal guide to 2019 by Lia Leendertz, published by Octopus Books UK for which I produced 50 illustrations; and one of the illustrations I supplied from April 2015 to December 2017 for Frank Ronan's monthly column in Gardens Illustrated Magazine.

Images for events, branding and packaging

I was commissioned by Jon Hill, Creative Director of The Telegraph, to redraw the newspaper's crest for the 160th anniversary re-design of the paper. The new crest appears in the newspaper every day, on the editorial/letters page.

The London Conchord Ensemble commissioned a linocut for their Summer Music Festival programme, you can read more about this commission here.

If you would like to use my designs, please contact me, I am usually happy to agree a fee for licensing an image for your requirements.

David Watson, art on silk, produces beautiful silk scarves using artwork by British artists, I have two designs in the scarves collection.

Gulf Islands Brewing, makers of fine ales based on Salt Spring Island off the west coast of Canada, have used my hare images on their gruit ale labels.

Commissioned prints

'Simple pleasures' and 'Watching the ducks' are two designs based on original prints that I was commissioned to make as 'portraits' of private gardens. The clients agreed that I could use the designs for greetings cards. A one-off print is a labour intensive project, so this makes the print much more affordable. Please contact me if you are interested in commissioning a print.
