Roamwide Collaborations: Meet Tarn Ellis!

In this series, we're speaking to talented people with whom we've had the chance to collaborate. We hope you will join us in celebrating their work too!

Read on to discover who is behind the uber-cool design of our Santorini jigsaw puzzle. Tarn Ellis' illustration of Santorini will inspire your wanderlust. We love that it's not the usual white and blue representation of this beautiful island but, instead, Tarn's depiction is full of warm earthy tones that evoke a magical Santorini sunset. Learn more about Tarn Ellis' career and what inspires her below.

RW: Hi, Tarn. Where do you call home?

TE: I like to think of myself as a nomad, because I travel so much and don’t have a base anywhere. However I grew up in a little village in the south of England , and my parents still live there, so I guess that will always be my home.

RW: How did you start a your career as an illustrator?

TE: I am self taught (I actually studied psychology at university!). With artists on both sides of my family, I was always inspired to draw and create. Once I discovered I could draw on my iPad while travelling, there was nothing holding me back!

RW: What inspires your illustrations?

TE: Women, nature, travel, self love, divine feminine and flowers.

RW: What is the best part of seeing your art transformed into a Roamwide puzzle?

TE: Knowing that people will have a great time while effectively recreating my art! Making a painting is a process, piece by piece, much the same as a puzzle!

RW: What makes you happy?

TE: My family. My friends. Having the freedom to travel. Chocolate.

RW: If you could travel now, where would you go and why?

TE: I would go to India because the culture fascinates me! Or New Zealand because the nature looks incredible! Don’t make me choose 

RW: Finally, do you have any exciting upcoming projects you would like to share with us?

TE: I am currently working on a book. It’s going to be about love... Keep your eyes open! Xxx

RW: Thank you, Tarn!
