Claire Rollet's Photo - International architectural & lifestyle. illustrator.

Expressive, original hand-drawn illustration of wonderful architecture and urban scenery is the forte of Amsterdam-based artist Claire Rollet, whose output also includes maps, portraits, instructional drawings and more. Although her creations are detailed and intricate, they’re loose and individual enough to create their own vibe and that’s what excites her clients.
Born in France, Claire spent a few years in Algeria as a child but lived in the UK most of her life. She worked in London for many years and was selling images of the city’s great buildings at Greenwich Market when she was discovered by our agency, which soon led to a burgeoning client list. Claire’s city sketches and architectural illustrations have been published in book form by Pictura, and she has a BA in Fine Art from Kingston University.

Approach

First of all, Claire works out a composition and some ideas for the image using quick sketches to show to her client, perhaps including drawings and images from her database. She then creates a line drawing in Indian ink, scans it into Photoshop and works on the colour digitally.

Style

Traditional ink line drawing is the cornerstone of Claire’s style, but with a fresh, modern touch to it thanks to her original pen work and the introduction of digital colour.

Client list

Claire’s clients include Taste of London, Templar Books, CAMRA, Marylebone Hotel, Oxford University Press, Canaletto London, Pavilion Books and more.
