Hi, I’m Marit, nice to meet you!
I’m based in the UK and I’ve worked as a freelance illustrator since 2014. My main focus is on picture books for young readers; fairy tales, fables and spectacular adventures! I love the challenge of meeting a brief, helping my clients with the concept, visual tone and appropriate illustrations to realise their projects. Nowadays I paint mainly digitally, but I have many years of experience using traditional media which is helpful when it comes to adding depth and texture to my work. In addition to illustrating your book I can also help with animated book trailers and website design. If you’re looking for seamless repeat patterns and placement prints for products I’m happy to design those too.
What people are saying...
Marit is well organised, reliable and produces high quality artwork to brief and on time. She helps drive forward the project, showing initiative and imagination in her work, and considers how her illustrations will work within the overall design. Marit is enthusiastic and communicates well, she is a real team player. Her contribution goes above and beyond the norm, and I highly recommend her.

Working with Marit as the illustrator of my new children’s book was a dream come true. From the first images she produced it was clear she has a remarkable talent for creating characters brimming with personality. The response to Monstrous Myths’ illustrations has been, without exception, hugely positive. I would recommend Marit Cooper as an illustrator without the slightest hesitation.
Working with Marit as the illustrator for Twentyone Olive Trees has been a joy. Her creativity shines in her speedy and precise artwork. She's not only organized but also consistently meets deadlines. Our collaboration has grown into a heart warming friendship. I highly recommend Marit as an illustrator; her talent, reliability, and the connection one can forge with her make her an excellent choice.
I had the pleasure of working with Marit commissioning two book covers for very different creative products. Marit was flexible in her approach and responsive to my questions and changing requirements. The end products were excellent, and Marit is a clearly talented artist. I have no hesitation in recommending and supporting Marit's work.
