Illustration is my passion!

When people ask me to describe my style I say “it’s a bit like the personality of a three year old child; bold & playful with a little bit of attitude.” Working from my little studio in the north of Scotland my illustrations have been used for picture books, magazines, wall prints and commercial commissions around the world.

A bit more about me…

I use my many scribbled sketchbooks and digital techniques to bring my ideas to life. Originally from Edinburgh, I have been lucky enough to have lived and worked all over the world. Now based in the highlands of Scotland I apply my bold illustration style to a variety of projects with many new ideas bubbling away waiting to be discovered....

Here’s some Lorna trivia:

I used to be a kids fashion photographer in London and shot for Harpers Bazaar, Harrods, Collezioni Bambini and Junior Magazine to name a few.

As a published children’s book illustrator I’ve been lucky enough to work with Walker Books, Piccadilly Press, Bonnier and Carlton Publishing.

I studied Visual Communication at Gray’s School of Art, RGU in Aberdeen where i met my talented husband Daniel Freytag (who runs award winning branding & design company Freytag Anderson.)

I’m originally an Edinburgh girl but I’m now a converted west-coaster.

I’ve been exceptionally lucky to have lived and worked in some of the most exciting cities in the world: New York, Sydney, London, Dubai, Glasgow and now the small seaside town of Oban- which I love!

I have two lovely kids aged 8 and 10 (they’re both ‘spirited’ and wild!). They keep us on our toes.

I work from the best studio in the world with the most amazing views over Oban Bay watching the ferries sail off to Mull.
