About Mel Armstrong
I love drawing! If I don’t have a sketchbook with me I panic. It’s an addiction that started a couple of years ago after trying to find some fabric for my son. I couldn’t find what I wanted so decided to design my own and then somehow fell into a new career illustrating and pattern designing.
Since then I’ve won the Make it in Design scholarship (2016), licensed greeting cards through my agent Advocate Art, worked freelance for Australian based greeting card companies and designed fabric used on adorable children’s clothing.
I love creating designs for kids, which are mostly inspired by the imagination of my own kids, but I also like to draw from nature…birds & flowers are never boring! My mind is a juggle of design ideas. I love bright, bold colours that will put a smile on your face and I like to break the rules!
Everyday I wake up pinching myself and feeling eternally grateful for being able to draw everyday!
Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find some inspiration from my inspiration.
