My Bio

I'm a freelance Graphic Designer & Illustrator with roots in traditional figurative art. Having recently transitioned to digital illustration, this gallery will reflect my creative journey. Expect my artwork to be pretty chaotic while I'm learning.

I've found it's incredibly important to feed your creative monster or else it will become a sulky lil sh*t. It's also damn needy. Take it out for walks, pet it (it loves scratching behind the ears) and give it lots of love and cuddles.

For any enquiries, email me at liesel.fyrebird@gmail.com

It's better to compare one's self with ourselves. Then when we look back on our work over the years we can see measurable growth. Having started in traditional arts I transitioned to digital illustration for commercial reasons. Learning new skills is always a challenge and my first digital attempts were sad. But there are huge benefits to educating oneself. I really encourage others who are struggling to take a class or two. After taking a few online courses I could see a vast improvement. It's not so much about talent, but whether you are willing to do the work it takes to improve your
