Intro & Goals (Digital Illustration)

Intro & Goals (Digital Illustration) - student project

Hi Everyone!


My name’s Helene and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been drawing since a young age, but completely put it on the back burner to go to university. When I moved to Melbourne (about 3 years ago) I got a job in the photography industry and again, put art to the back of my mind.

Being forced to be at home since the pandemic started and under lockdown for the past 6 months has really made me think about what I want to do with my life, so I started getting back into painting and design (a classic tale it seems ahah)

About 3 weeks ago I 100% decided that an artistic career was what I wanted to pursue in life. So I got out of my introverted comfort zone and started to put myself out there (I've always struggled with second guessing things, thinking they won't be good enough, etc)

I want people to feel joy and inspired when they look at my work, because that’s what I feel creating it. My ultimate goal would be creating a more passive type of income (redbubble, online store etc) with my digital work, so I can afford to create paintings and more gallery type work (which have a higher cost margin).

My immediate goals are to keep making work that I love, sharing on my Instagram and making it available to purchase on my website. I’d love to start an Etsy store sometime in the near future as well.
