About Me

HelloI My name is Mel and I'm an illustrator based on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Melbourne, Australia.

After a brief stint as a jazz musician, I decided to pursue an art career instead and studied fine art and illustration. I secured my first illustration commission right after I graduated, and I've been working full time as an illustrator ever since!

My work is a playful exploration of colour, shape, and texture. I've created artwork for books, apps, ads, games, toys, animation, and much more.

I'm always happy to look at projects big and small. If you think my work would be a good fit, get in touch and let's make some cool stuff together!
