Edwina Buckley is an Australian illustrator and designer based in Sydney working as the creative director for Lollilu.
Hand-painted vintage floral for Zimmermann out for High Summer 2013
She has illustrated & designed for numerous fashion labels, including Kim Kardashian’s new label, Hurley, Insight, Seafolly, Rip Curl, Jets, Pumpkin Patch and Peter Alexander to name a few. She has also illustrated and designed for a variety of homewares & children’s toys.
With a love for illustrating in various mediums, she designs for packaging, toys, stationery, fashion, editorial, textiles or greetings products.
Edwina has also helped illustrate for clients wanting to pitch ideas for full-length children’s animation features to Village Roadshow.
She is most regularly inspired by the marriage of opposed objects combining birds and animals, ladies, bones, flowers and skulls into considered acts of beauty.
Owner of a prickly bearded dragon that doubles as a watercolour palette, Edwina has found a niche designing repeats and placement patterns for the fashion industry. But when she’s not laughing loudly in quiet places, she’s secretly plotting to make it big as an illustrator in advertising, editorial and publishing.
