Oliver Pengilley has been a professional artist for over fifteen years. Since leaving further education he has worked in various locations in the UK, including Bath, Bristol and London.
Starting out as a wildlife artist, he displayed work in London along other wildlife artists such as Robbert Bateman and David Shepherd. Although this was enjoyable, Oliver wanted to express more of his own heart and walk with the Lord in his paintings. As his relationship with Jesus grew so do did his ability to paint what he saw spiritually. This became his form of worship.
Over the last ten years Oliver has been asked to come and share his knowledge on painting prophetically during worship in various countries, including many parts of USA, Canada, Germany, and the UK. Helping others to express their hearts and thoughts through painting.
“Seeing peoples hearts being opened by a picture, expressing God’s love for us and ours for Him showed me the true purpose of my art” - Oliver×
I’m Jago and I have been illustrating children’s books since graduating from Falmouth 14 years ago . I live and work from my home in North Cornwall with my lovely family.
I have produced illustrations for over 50 children’s books and a few magazines, as well as a TV show or two, some logos and album covers. Recently I have also participated in a series of exhibitions and signed prints of my work are now available in galleries and shops around the UK and beyond. My wife and I have recently been working hard to expand the range of illustrated products on our online shop.
Most of my children’s book work has been for publishers in the US as my agent (Ronnie Herman) is based in New York. I’m probably best known for my work with New York Times Bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones. Our books have sold more than 2.6 million copies and won a tidy stack of awards.
I work entirely digitally using a combination of an iMac and Photoshop and an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. All my prints are produced using pigment ink and archival paper to ensure excellent lightfastness.
You can follow my work on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at the links below, or visit my online portfolio and shop on my website.!×
