and Surface Pattern Designer
Hello and Welcome!
I’m Mel, an Aussie/Kiwi Illustrator & Surface Pattern Designer living in the coolest capital in the World, Wellington New Zealand. I work full time (around being a parent to my awesome kids) illustrating children’s books and designing patterns for fabric, stationery and kids’ products.
If you’re looking to collaborate or enquire about licensing, then let’s chat!!
