Freelance illustrator / artist who specializes in children's book illustrations.
I am versatile and diverse and can produce a range of different artworks, from light hearted illustrations to impressionistic landscapes. No job is too big or small. I can create fully illustrated books or produce one off paintings, sketches or illustrations.
I like to think that my illustrations have the cute and silly factor and will put a smile on peoples faces. My style is whimsical, colourful and eye catching and I like to think appeals to children and adults alike.

Corrina Holyoake Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
I love the whole process of bringing someones creations to life. I enjoy the close working relationship that is formed, bouncing ideas off each other, but by far the best bit is to see the joy on the clients face when they see their characters or ideas alive on paper.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I have always had a passion for art and writing and as a child would illustrate my own stories. It was later on in life after a traumatic event that I finally had the courage to pursue my dream of becoming a full time creative.
Why should our clients choose you?
I am extremely easy to get on with and will bend over backwards to make sure my clients are happy with the work I produce. I meet all deadlines given and I am a very hard worker. I put my all into any project given to me and I love a challenge. There is absolutely no pressure on my side at all so if you are looking for an easy going, trustworthy and passionate creative then look no further.

I have been working as a childrens illustrator for several years now and worked with many different authors over the years. I can work both digitally and traditionally but tend to favour traditional methods with digital enhancements. My style is whimsical and colourful and I have been told has a cheery vibe. Although I specialise in childrens illustrations I am able to work in other styles and genres as well. No job is too big or too small, I can produce one off illustrations / sketches, concept work to fully illustrated books.
I am a trained Graphic Designer and have recently started to get back into the field. I am able to produce business stationary, marketing material such as leaflets, posters, banners etc, branding and logo design, book layout / cover design, typesetting and proof reading. I can send samples of previous work if needed.
Over the years I have produced several series of paintings. I am confident in most mediums and am able to work in a number of different styles. I can also replicate styles. I am constantly experimenting with my art and you would be forgiven to think that my work is done by different artists as it is so varied at times. I have produced impressionist landscapes, spiritual art, dark art, decorative pieces and the latest addition is my Splatter Ink Art range. I am available to take commissions and can work with any subject matter.
From April 2016 to present.
I founded Artypeace in 2016 with the aim of exploring art as therapy. I have been holding childrens mindful art work shops at local events and aim to branch out to adults and the elderly in due course
Cedric the Giraffe
Helping Children Explore Their Emotions is just the book kids need to express their feelings after a loss or a significant event has touched their lives. Cedric the Giraffe lives in the African savannah, and is trying to learn to deal with his emotions. Although Cedric is big and strong, he is very sad because he has lost his father. He must learn to deal with his anger and insecurity. Author Sharon A Latibeaudiere says, "The book reflects my personal story of the loss of my father, through separation, as a young child. As a play therapist, I often work with children who struggle making sense of such issues, and this was originally written to help them." Her next book in the series is about Rory the lion cub, whose father returns after a long absence. Sharon A Latibeaudiere grew up in London and now lives in Croydon, United Kingdom. A counsellor and trainee play therapist, she writes to help others explore and understand some of life's more difficult emotions.
This book is about two little mice called Timmy and Tommy and all the adventures that they have down in Hedgerow Village. There are ten stories in the book and all are done in rhyme. There will hopefully be a 2nd Volume and a Christmas edition to come.
The latest book I have been working on. This book is about a little girl called Tammy and how she copes with her Mum leaving the famly. The book is aimed at helping children deal with their emotions during this difficult time. The brief was to use non human forms as the characters and to focus more on colours and shapes.
Reggie Courage Series
Reggie Courage is an original and captivating new series of children’s books, created to share positive values, inspiring messages, and elevate spiritual understanding. Written by Aalayah Sargeant
This is a book I have written and illustrated. The original idea is something my son came up when he was 5. We were having one of our nonsense chats on the way to school discussing what animals we could make up by mixing them together and what we could call them etc We came up with characters such as the Prickly Python, Antosaurus and Kissies. A little light bulb switched on flashing 'picture book' So I was going to write a story based on that concept but after doing some research I noticed that there was already a book out on the market like that…typical!. So I changed the idea and thought I would turn it into an alphabet book with a twist. The book is all done in rhyme and is utterly ridiculous. The aim with it is to raise a giggle and to be a fun educational tool.
