Hi, I’m Kelly, I’m an illustrator and graphic designer from Melbourne, Australia. I spend most of my time travelling the world making convention appearances and getting creative. I specialise in minimalist illustrations of female pop-culture icons

Since I was young, I’ve always been drawn to fantasy and the world of make-believe. From tea parties to grand adventures, I loved worlds where anything was possible, and where women could save the world with style and femininity.

I create minimalist designs that celebrate the female form. I try to capture the true nature of my subjects and express the joy, wonder and empowerment I took from pop culture growing up.

I’m currently available for work, so feel free to drop me a line, and if you want to see where I’ll next be displaying my work, a list of all my upcoming convention appearances and showcases can be found here.
