Live Illustration

The art of observation, hand drawn illustration and synthesis, capturing the essence of your message, to create an inclusive, shared experience for all.

Hand drawn digital illustration, synthesised from a variety of sources, such as pre-recorded workshops, written documents, annual plans, audio discussions or ideas that you have.

Visual scribing in live time. I listen, synthesise and draw - all at the same time. Hand drawn on an iPad, the illustration can be projected onto large screens for your audience to watch it unfold.

Make your message memorable by showing it. I hand draw visual representations of your content, animating the images to bring your message to life.

I'm Rhiannon

I’m a live illustrator (aka, visual scribe or graphic facilitator) who specialises in capturing the essence of your message through hand-drawn illustrations.


With a focus on leadership, gender and racial equality, mental health, and LGBTQIA+ communities, my goal is to create a more inclusive and compassionate society through my work.

Let's celebrate our differences as strengths. 

I'm passionate about gender and race equality, feminism, LGBTQ+ and animal rights. 

I believe the world is a richer place when we all feel safe to express our unique selves. I want to see a world where we treat ourselves, each other, our animals and planet with empathy, compassion and respect. How cool!

Let's continue to strive for better.

I believe we never stop learning. I want to keep getting better, learn from my experiences. Continue to analyse and reflect on my challenges and wins.

I believe in starting from where I am today.

 'Now' is a good place to grow from.

Let's just be ourselves. That's enough. 

I believe in walking my talk. Doing what I say I'm going to do. And if I fall short, being honest and upfront about it. Then working to get better.

I take pride in my work, my choices and strive to always trust in my intuition.
