London-based illustrator Josie Shenoy creates intricate illustrations drawing on themes of nature, pattern, traditional decorative arts and a love of storytelling.

Alongside taking on commissions and freelance illustration work, Josie designs her own collections of greeting cards and giclée art prints.

Drawing is at the heart of her creative practice. Through a combination of detailed pencil drawing, collage and traditional print methods fused with digital processes, Josie aims to create kaleidoscopic compositions in a palette of vintage colours and textures.

Josie is available for commissions and collaborations so please get in touch by visiting her contact page. Josie has recently moved from her studio at Cockpit Arts, Deptford, and can now be found illustrating in her lovely bright studio in the heart of Balham, London. 


Josie is now represented by The Artworks Illustration Agency.

Full images and trade prices are available in the new catalogue – please contact Josie to request one.
