Illustration Jester at Great Brampton House

2011 graduate Jessica Shoolbraid (otherwise known as Illustration Jester) has had a busy summer. First off she was commissioned by the owners of Great Brampton House to complete a mural on the walls of their huge roof terrace. Jessica normally paints the most beautiful little watercolours in her glorious sketchbooks, so the switch to walls and stairwells was somewhat daunting, especially as she had to cope with 20 foot scaffolding ladders on top of a three story building! Well she did it and the result is excellent. The roof terrace will be complete when climbing plants and flowers are added in the spring of 2013. It is hoped that birds and insect life will be attracted and when established the whole space will look amazing. You can see more of the story if you visit her website at http://www.illustrationjester.com/.



The success of the Brampton House mural led to Jessica receiving a second commission to paint the shop front of Quintessential in Truro Cornwall. Here's a picture of Jess with her latest creation. Nice work. What next we wonder?
