What Our Artists Say

Some feedback from our our artists.

“It’s an honour to be part of the wonderful LRS family. Lilla and the studio ladies have been a positive influence on me since I first joined the studio and I’m now working with a number of clients that I secretly dreamed of—from amazing greetings collections to gorgeous glassware designs. They truly know their stuff and are a joy to work with.” Rachael Taylor

“I love the support I get from the ladies of LRS. It is great to have agents to find me great jobs and do the business end of things while I can focus my extra time to make new art.” Tara Lilly

“Lilla Rogers Studio has been my guide and oxygen during the last 12 years — as I climb the steep slopes of the illustration mountains. Help has always been given when it’s needed … Love has always been given when it’s needed. Together we make a beautiful team and a lovely creative family.” Helen Dardik

“LRS is a buzzing hub of creativity. I always feel nourished, supported and inspired by the spirit of each and every one there who make me feel like the sky is the limit.” Linda Ketelhut

“The LRS agency is constantly in the forefront of discovering new areas of opportunities for its illustrators—whether in packaging, toys, textiles, home decor or you name it!” Sarajo Frieden

“With a good agency, you feel like you’re part of a community, rather than struggling alone. They offer support and encouragement, see your work afresh, and therefore can make valuable suggestions and judgments. When the standard of work of the other illustrators that are represented is high, it can challenge you to produce new and (hopefully) ever improving work. Most importantly, an agent frees you up to concentrate primarily on creating work (which is what we tend to be best at and enjoy most) and removes many of the day to day pressures of looking for work, negotiating fees and contracts, etc.”
Trina Dalziel

“I value immensely the feedback and encouragement I get from my agent. For me, she’s a source of inspiration and positive energy.”
Jessica Allen

“An agent can be in a unique position to give feedback, as she is constantly looking at and evaluating work. If you decide to go the agent route, it’s important to respect your agent and her point of view and appreciate what she does for you. It’s not a perfect world out there, and agents can’t solve all of your problems, but that isn’t their job. It’s a partnership. You give them high-quality work, delivered on time to your clients, and they give you the benefit of their expertise to keep finding new clients and opening new avenues for your work. This pushes you to constantly grow and improve as an artist, and ideally this works out to be a mutually beneficial relationship.”
