Jessica Marree: an all round creative based in The Gold Coast, Australia.
Tell us about yourself. I am an all round creative who spends my days designing and my nights & mostly any other spare time illustrating. Huge lover of Fleetwood Mac, Black Sabbath and a great coffee. After living on the Gold Coast for many years I now call Melbourne my home.
What got you into designing and how long have you been designing for? I have always had an appreciation for the arts and being lucky enough to do a lot of traveling after graduating high school I decided to start full time design classes with CATC Design College. It was one of the best experiences of my life. That was three or so years ago now and I haven't looked back since.
How would you describe your design style? My style is very detailed. It at times can by quite feminine with a lot of focus on nature and inspiration from my surroundings and emotions.
What motivates and inspires you to get out of bed each day? I'm motivated to create. Getting up very early in the morning before anyone is awake and illustrating away is very therapeutic . Also being a designer you constantly want to get into work, be challenged and solve problems which is another huge motivation to me.
Tell us about the artwork you’ve designed for The Paper Merchants? The pieces I have done for The Paper Merchants are Influenced by nature, they pieces are for the inner bohemian in you. Statement pieces that will get the conversation going with your visiter's. For the home or office, where ever you feel you want to bring some colour and beauty into your life.
