Sheryl Cole is a Melbourne-based illustrator and design director with a growing international following for riotously colourful, whimsically expressive watercolours and products starring Australia’s show-stopping native birds and flora. She produces artwork for a broad range of clients in markets such as publishing, packaging design, brand identity, stationery, textiles, surface design, yardage repeat & print design, children's wear, children’s books and fine art.
Sheryl is endlessly inspired by the beauty of nature. She makes time to explore it curiously and playfully, and responds creatively either in the moment or back in her beachside studio. It’s little wonder her illustrations and designs reflect a playful and childlike imagination mixed with elements of the natural world. Her illustration work is mixed media, comprising layers of pencil, ink, gouache and watercolour. "I just love the way watercolours organically almost paint themselves with their juicy, luscious flow".
