You do such a great job. Have you studied or are you self taught? If so where did you study?
I am self taught. Like most little girls I loved to draw girls in pretty dresses. My style evolved from there.
Why did you choose fashion/beauty illustrations? What attracted you to it?
I studied fashion design in school but it was really fashion illustration that I loved. There is a different feeling when you see an illustration versus the actual product, but mutually they both capture the eye and makes you think "I want that."
Could you tell us a little about your creative process when starting an illustration? How long does it take to complete a growing?
Depending what I am drawing, it could take me anywhere from 20-30 hours. It also depends how much color I want to add and if I want a painting or a simple chic look. I always start off by laying out a plan- Is there a background? Will there be people? I look for inspiration and start from there.
What motivates, inspires and influences you?
Everything from magazines, other artist, and ev
You use colours in your illustrations, what is your approach to colour? Do you follow a colour scheme or just follow your instincts?
I follow my instinct. Usually I think of what "vibe" I want to portray. Is it pretty? Edgy? Should I use more colors or only focus on few? Who would like this type of piece?
