I collaborate with individuals, companies and organisations and create beautiful and exclusive artwork for their illustration, surface and graphic design needs. 

 Daniela Glassop • Illustration and Design is a Hamilton, Newcastle based business. My office is located in Hamilton and I share the office with 2 other designers in a collective workspace called ‘The Light Room’.

I work with businesses to make them to look professional and to be able to communicate to their own clients. I have years of experience in the Design industry and can create professional illustrations or design; and to create illustrated products such as promotional items and soft furnishings. 

I can give you personal attention with an eye to detail with an awareness of current trends.

I offer the following range of design services:

art licensing
surface pattern design
logo design & branding
design for print
promotional material
design consultancy
social media banners
website design

Daniela is also a founding member of the Design Department at the University of Newcastle and helped to develop and taught on the Visual Communication Design degree for 25 years and is available for guest lectures, workshops and help with portfolio development and feedback.

Also available for commissions, art licensing, art, design and fibre art workshops.

I live in Newcastle, Australia with my husband, 2 sons, 2 cats and the birds and lizards that visit my garden.

I love to solve design problems and my illustrations and paintings tend to be based on the natural environment, flora, fauna and food while being inspired by architecture, vintage items, the fashion industry and the arts. My work tends to include exaggerated colour, pattern and  texture; are combined with realism and defined shadows to create painted images that are also decorative. 

I can work directly with you to create beautiful art or design that is exclusive and meets your needs. I am also happy to discuss affordable options which can include licensing. 

I have far more work than appears on this site so if you have a particular need, I am happy to see if I already have an image that will suit your needs and sell it to you or license it to you.

Some testimonials by people I have worked with are below:

When you hire Daniela, you have the pleasure of working with an artist. Artists have a way of teaching us to see what is not immediately visible. They see with different eyes. That is their function and their gift to us. Daniela was able to interpret what I was telling her about my business and translated it into something beautiful that is representative of what I wanted. She has many, many years of experience and is truly passionate about what she does.
— Rita Barnett
Daniela’s work is of exceptional quality and beauty. Her unique designs reflect her careful consideration of her client’s requests. Always above and beyond.
— Christina Gerakiteys, Ideation at Work.
The social media and design assistance I received from Daniela was spot on!
I am pleased with the logo design and the way she was able to connect and style my social media platforms to give uniformity to the overall look of my business.
Daniela also set-up my blog and assisted me to understand some of the social media concepts that had previously eluded me. She has a professional approach and is very easy to work with.
