Ms Jane Webster


I am an illustrator and educator who coordinates and delivers the Level 6 study experience of the award-winning Illustration Animation BA (hons.) My lifestyle, food, and architectural illustration are commissioned nationally and internationally. My hand drawn, reportage illustration celebrates the food and travel industry, evoking a fresh visual sense of both geographic and personal place. My illustration work is utilised across Editorial design, Advertising and Branding and packaging. I am represented by Debutart Illustration Agency. My wide range of clients includes The Times, The Telegraph and The Independent Newspapers, The Conde-Nast Group, Euro RSCG, Waitrose, The Royal Society of Chemistry, Cedar Communications and many others. I have undertaken artist's residencies including The Welsh National Opera, the Natural History Museum and Free Range Films depicting the work they undertake behind the scenes. 

As an educator I promote the importance of the communication of socially conscience and useful design. As level 6 coordinator my interests lie in the the potential that the illustration animation industry has to offer to each student, and the student's contextualisation of where they see their future in that landscape. Through my  pedagogic research I have designed and developed a project called ‘Design Dialogue.' It is delivered during the whole of the academic year as a long thin piece of research. This reflective practice project is for students to make direct, self-initiated contact and dialogue within the creative industry before they graduate from the course.
