And my lovely friends, today we are featuring our very final illustration "Yes, I dream of butterflies" by the very sweet Joanna Bardsley. Jo submitted 4 illustrations for submission into our project, and was quite a darling as we asked her to combine several of those illustrations into one! The result is the very delightful "Yes, I dream of butterflies". Printed in a dusty pink, light gold and brown it is gorgeously sweet, and we love it indeed.
Name: Joanna Bardsley
Location: Gold Coast, Australia
About Joanna: Sparked by the simple and unassuming beauty of everyday things; from dew-drops on spider webs, to a leaf falling, to the curls of a downy feather, or the pattern of light on the footpath; Jo tries to breathe it all in and capture it and often finds herself quite overwhelmed.
My Illustration is about “Yes, I dream of Butterflies” is a whimsical step into the realms of ‘what if…?’ following the usual nature of Jo’s work, in invoking a little wonder and curiosity, but also possessing a warm quietness.
I love being an illustrator because it’s the perfect avenue to dream along. You can go places with pencil and paper that would be almost impossible by any other means.
I am excited about this project because I love the personal quality; the illustrations, the process and the printing all combine to create unique pieces, full of character and heart.
