I'm Crissie; an illustrator, print designer and rainbow maker. I love eclectic interiors, vintage fabric and spending time in the great New Zealand outdoors - which lucky for me, is my backyard.


Bright, bold and beautiful colour palettes are always at the heart of my work, which can be found on a variety of products such as fabric, greeting cards, home textiles & packaging, as well as in editorial & publishing projects.


I'm inspired by all things nature, mid century design, fashion and my antipodean roots. When I'm not designing, I love nothing more than pottering in my veggie garden, going on riverside bike rides with my daughters or chilling out listening to my favourite music on a slow Sunday afternoon.
