About me

Thank you for visiting my website.

I was born and brought up in the South West of England, where I also attended art college. I have over 20 years’ experience producing illustrations and designs for a number of major publishers and manufacturers within the giftware industry, across the UK, USA and Europe.

In the past, I have worked under the name of Abbi Brown as well as under my own name, Jan Pashley. My Abbi Brown work has been characterised by a softer, cuter style of illustration, enabling me to develop an alternative, distinct look from my Jan Pashley designs.

The images you can see on my website gallery include existing Abbi Brown designs. Although I will continue to produce illustrations in the Abbi Brown style, from 2010 onwards it’s my intention to be known under the name of Jan Pashley for all new work.

I have previously been represented by Libba Jones Associates, but in 2010 made the decision to represent myself. My new website is an exciting new venture for me, enabling publishers to view a wide range of my work easily, and to contact me directly to discuss licensing and commissions. I hope you enjoy browsing my work.
