Artist of the Month – Colleen Whittaker – August 2014


After only being with Bright for a short period of time we would like to announce Colleen Whittaker, licensing artist, with the title of Artist of the Month! Colleen approached Bright after a long career as an in house designer here in the UK.


Colleen’s willingness to evolve as an artist sets a great example to all, she is a pleasure to work with and responds amazingly well to a brief. Colleen works day and night to create the perfect designs for the licensing team. With daily updates, funny anecdotes and stories of her little one’s antics she is a pure pleasure to work with.


Bright’s Licensing Agent Hannah Curtis has been working closely with Colleen to develop her stunning new style. Originally submitting her Cute portfolio to Hannah, Colleen now works across a variety of styles including beautiful snowy Christmas designs, stunning florals and her signature cute aesthetic.


It is a joy to watch Colleen’s portfolio grow and strengthen and even more of a joy to know that Colleen can happily work from home doing what she loves, spend time with her family and create a sell out portfolio in only 8 months! Thank you Colleen for all your hard work and wonderful nature, you are a shining example of how successful a freelance illustrator can be with the right attitude, skill and openness to learn new things!
