About SJ Axelby

SJ Axelby is a true creative who has art in her DNA: her great-great grandfather designed the Penny Black stamp and taught art to Queen Victoria’s children and her parents were antique dealers. SJ is happiest than surrounded by antiques. Her degree in textile design continues to influence her love of pattern, colour and all things interiors; she adores table settings, antiques, “shelfies” and vignettes.

Best known for her room portraiture, her pieces have featured in national and international titles and she now works full time for designers, hoteliers, and clients around the world.

She works in mixed media, predominantly in watercolour with markers, and is known for her use of bold colour, busy pattern and lots of contrasting textures.

Her first book, 'Interior Portraits,' pays homage to the captivating interiors of some of the world's most prominent creatives. Her newly launched second book, 'Painted Travels,' showcases stunning places to visit including Daylesford and Leoube.
