Thanks for stopping by! 
I'm a multidisciplinary artist, specialising in illustration, murals, painting and design. I'm currently based on Yugambeh land, in Burleigh Heads, Australia where I live with my husband and cat. 
My practice focusses on illustration and art with a strong emphasis on colour and nature, following twelve years working in the creative industries across graphic design and branding. My debut illustrated picture book is out now with Affirm Press. You can order here or buy it from most places where books are sold
Also working on some book collaborations with Janet Manley, a New York Times published brilliant writer based in New York, who also happens to be my sister. And always collaborating in my studio at Mint Art House.
I'm always on the lookout for new and exciting projects and collaborations, so please email me at design@camillemanley.com.au
