I DRAW GIRLS

Pretty, whimsical ones with delicate line work and a splash of watercolour

Growing up, Mekel always loved to draw. Especially girls in pretty dresses. She thought about being a fashion designer, however quickly realised she hated sewing, and went on to study graphic arts instead.

After working for over 10 years as a graphic designer for different boutique agencies in Perth, Western Australia, Mekel started kickin’ goals as a full-time illustrator.

Her first professional assignments were illustrating ‘More Money for Shoes’ a book by Melissa Browne, and was was chosen by Urban Walkabout to illustrate the front covers of their Perth guides over the course of two seasons. You may have seen her handwritten logo for Betts Shoes, shoebox and large watercolour murals for the iconic Australian store.

Mekel joined the Jacky Winter Group in 2014, and now works with clients across the world, including TwiningsTOPSHOP, Westfield, Elle and Revlon.

She has been interviewed by Vanity Fair and featured as one of their ‘5 must-follow fashion illustrators’, and is known for her delicate linework, large scale watercolours and pops of bright colour.

Mekel has held three solo exhibitions,her first in 2013 for the Perth Fashion Festival, 2014 ‘Wanderlust‘ for Urban Couture and 2016 for the First Monday in May Perth premiere.

Mekel has lectured at South Metropolitan Tafe teaching social media, eMarketing, branding and fashion illustration, and does the occasional workshop.
