Louisa Cannell's illustration style for Refinery 29, Vice and more is beautifully painterly

American illustrator Louisa V Cannell’s work has a beautiful, fluid way about it, conveying a sense of place and emotion in each image. Cannell is a designer and illustrator for Refinery 29, and the rest of her client list is equally impressive, including Vice, Condé Nast Traveller, Goop, and National Geographic.

Her personal work showcases a playful and sensitive approach to drawing famous figures, and we love her set of pictures tracing the many faces and styles of Gwen Stefani. The painterly style feels at once classic and modern whether in portraiture, Insta-style food illustrations or vibrant beach scenes.
