Meet Mekel – Perth-based watercolour fashion illustrator
Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi I’m Mekel, I’m a fashion illustrator from Perth. I love drawing girls and painting with watercolour, doing commissions and creative projects with people.
Do you have a favourite side project of your own?
When I’m not working, I still love creating! And the moment my side project is working towards my next exhibition.
What does “living creatively” mean to you?
So many of us describe ourselves as creative, but I guess not many actually put their creative ideas out there and show the world. Act on your ideas don’t just think about them!
What’s your current obsession?
Its getting cold, so I’m all about super fluffy jumpers and rugging up cosy inside with mulled wine time.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Jump in head first and think about the ‘how’ later.
