Australian Artist Spotlight: Catherine Campbell

Do you recognise Catherine Campbell's dreamy illustrations? If you read Frankie, Notebook, Real Living or Small Magazine you might; Catherine has been featured in all these great mags as well as participating in exhibitions across Australia and in the US.

I'm drawn to the ethereal beauty of the women in Catherine's art, highlighted with just a touch of watercolour. Make sure you check out some of Catherine's interesting papercut technique on her site.

Catherine is a graduate of the College of Fine Arts, NSW and is now based in Melbourne. You can own your own print from her Etsy store My Folk Lover. And this is huge - for today only, Catherine is hosting a sale of 50% off all prints at her My Folk Lover Etsy store. Sale finishes 21st April 2009.

You can find out more about Catherine's art and upcoming exhibitions on her blog, website and Flickr photosteam. You can also find a great interview with Catherine on Design*Sponge.

And a huge thank you to Anna from Able and Game who mentioned Catherine's sale on Twitter and prompted my further exploration.

  9. Oh Noooooo!! I missed the sale. I LOVE Catherine's work. I've framed her page from this year's frankie calender, so I'll have to be content with that for now.

  10. Bummer Lisa!!! I almost bought the Frankie calendar for exactly the same purpose! But couldn't part with the Rob Ryan poster from Frankie that is already in the frame... Too many beautiful prints and not enough space for them all!
