Andrea Smith is a Sydney-based illustrator and designer whose charm-filled, hands-on work recalls a lost innocence rarely seen in today's fast-paced times. Hers is a world rich in storytelling; each illustration drawing the viewer in to take a closer look, resulting in an unexpected (yet always welcome) ‘smile in the mind'. Andrea's handmade collages are assembled from her large collection of hand painted papers, giving new life to forgotten tactile beauty. Inspired by Australian animals, plants and landscapes and the vibrant aesthetic of traditional folk art. It's this one-of-a-kind charm seen throughout Andrea's designs that capture the imagination and give it flight in ways that words often can't.
