Bernadette's Profile

About

Hello and thanks for dropping by! My name is Bernadette Sipkes and my mum would tell you that I started drawing when I was two years old. I opened this etsy store so that I could share my passion for nature and bold colors. I have done advertising and editorial illustration for various Australian magazines like; Dolly; Cleo; Cosmopolitan and; Total Girl. My drawing tool of choice is the humble pigment liner. All my prints (both giclee and gocco) start off as hand drawn line art. From time to time, I also print with the Gocco (a type of toy serigraph printer from Japan) - its imperfections and unpredictability are part of its charm and it won't be around for long (http://www.savegocco.com) so I am making the most of it.
