About MelancholyMemento

Sales 352
On Etsy since 2017

My name is Mira and I'm an illustrator from Sydney. In this shop you'll find my illustrations in the form of greeting cards and art prints. I started rekindling my love of drawing in recent years as a form of therapy. I pushed myself to create something every day as part of a healing process. As time passed, I started to build up a collection of illustrations and I realise that there was a story to tell. From there, the urge to create a shop for my creations has become greater each day. So here I am ...

Melancholy Memento is inspired by femininity, the occult, the moon and pop culture. My illustrations are essentially a diary where I share thoughts, appreciation of life and what it means to be a woman. Through my work I hope that I can inspire others, or simply provide escapism from the mundane.

I work mainly with ink and watercolour. All illustrations are prints of an original (unless otherwise stated). I don't usually plan on how the end result would look like. I start with a subject and a pose. From there, I let everything creates itself. It's a very natural process, letting the subconscious to take over and to see where it would lead me.

All artworks are then scanned and digitally corrected to capture the original as accurately as possible. I've made sure to include a backstory to every piece I've created, and they do have personal significance to it, so take the time to have a read and if you couldn't find what you're looking for, I hope you're at least entertained.
