Mairead Murphy is a Melbourne-based illustrator and designer.  

Coming from a background in Interior Architecture, Mairead brings a keen eye for composition and an appreciation of texture to her work.  While her passion for design continues at Maike Design Studio, she has just always really loved to draw (even her design sketchbook margins are filled with little characters) prompting her to establish Mairead Murphy Illustration.    

Developing and producing images or characters with their own personality is something that she always finds surprising and exciting - like meeting someone for the first time.  Mairead's style uses the elasticity and softness of detailed pencil work to capture personality and movement in her characters, while digital elements bring colour and texture.
