My name is Alice, I am 23 years old and I am about to graduate in Product Design. Before starting university I received a classical education, and art was present in my life only on a theoretical level: I went to many exhibitions and browsed through catalogs on catalogs, but without ever picking up a pencil!
Since the pandemic started I felt the need to express myself, to change the way I see the world, and the only way I could think of was to start illustrating.
I bought an Ipad and started drawing. Art has become my filter for reality, my way of interpreting the world as I want: it relaxes me to know that, if I want it, there is only me, my iPad and what I imagine.
Art is my refuge, my safe place.
Lately I've started to mix my work as a product designer with illustrations. In the future I would like to design toys for children and the idea of trying to illustrate a book for the little ones is ever present in my head!
Hi there, my name's Millie and I am an Australian creative, currently living in Turkey. I'm obsessed with everything drag, colourful and crafty. My main obsession is drawing portraits of Drag Queens from around the world, but I also collaborate on custom portraits, make draft craft tutorial videos, design recycled cardboard earrings, paint, embroider felt books and write about my adventures living overseas. I know, I get overwhelmed too! When I'm not making things, I like to cuddle my foster cats and talk to my friends.

Woman to Woman by Yum-Yum Halls-Holmsen
I like to think of myself as a creative usually with a leaning towards history or with a political twist and sometimes just plain silly! I used to be an actress and artist simultaneously over past decades; Mainly theatre and murals. Then I swapped to writing short stories, a Novella, Poetry and creating large canvases before becoming a ‘Senior Fragrance Sommelier’ for Penhaligon’s British Heritage Perfume House.
