Charis Raine Illustration


Hi, I'm Charis - I make art from my tiny studio in the old Roman Viking city of York and have slowly developed a range of illustrated paper goods since I first started in 2016. My work is inspired by folklore, landscapes and Scandinavia, painted in gouache or watercolour. All of my products start off as a drawing and I'm a bit obsessed with starry skies and cabins in the woods.

The story behind the business
Meet Charis Raine Illustration

Hello, I'm Charis. I started my business in 2016 on a young persons Princes Trust course after uni. I wanted to turn my passion for art and design into a job, and now I am proud to support my autistic son with my illustrated goods.

I paint, design and pack every single order myself and it gives me so much joy to see my illustrations all over the world! I hope you enjoy my cosy landscapes and unique designs and can see the passion that is poured into every item.
