  6. Hi there! I am a long time watcher of your art, it is so amazing! I was wondering, do you find it hard to capture your watercolor in your scans? Do you have any tips for preserving the luminosity and vibrancy of your colors?

  7. Hi Rhea,

    In regards to your question about scanning work and preserving the luminosity - I don't find it to be a tricky process.
    Some tips:
    I scan my images at 300 dpi, on a canon pixma scanner. I use the setting which is for photos (the setting for documents is too harsh) and then very slightly up the colours and contrast in photoshop so that the image matches the original. Hope that helps.

  8. Hello Caitlin! Thank you so much for your tips, I feel super special you took the time to reply. Thanks again! (I think my problem lies in not owning a very good scanner... will try your tips once I can score a better one!)

  12. Love these! so pretty, have you ever used your illustrations on textiles? i think they would look amazing placed on a t-shirt or repeated on some beautiful silk scarves!!

  13. Thanks Fiona.
    Yep, i love designing for textiles and hope i'll be able to pursue this more in the future. in the past i've designed t-shirts and also collaborated with fashion designer Karla Spetic to create a textile design that was printed on silk skirts, blazers and dresses. I'm also currently working on some textile designs for a young designer too!
