Hello & Welcome

I’m Mel, an illustrator, surface pattern designer and teacher from Wellington, New Zealand.  I’m obsessed with creating beautiful things, from craft to illustration to sewing to IKEA flat packs (no kidding).

I have worked for some awesome clients such as Hallmark Creative US, American Greetings, Auzou, Liontree Publishing, New Frontier Publishing, Lilipinso, Oxford University Press, and more.  I’m so lucky that I get to draw every day and bring joy not only to myself but to others who see my work.

Thank you for stopping by my website.
