Julie chats with Sunshine

Sunshine spends most of her days convincing people that yes Sunshine is actually her real name. It is.

She is a fantastical, whimsy inspired artist, living amongst the cobbled streets of sunny Melbourne, Australia.

As a professional artist, her work has been displayed in several national galleries and sold internationally. With quite a few children’s books under her belt, she’s becoming obsessed with character development in her art and allowing her little people to live their own lives.

Sunshine draws heavily on her love of fantasy and science fiction, a lifetime of dusty second hand bookshops and an obsessive urge to watch all the awesome tv series in one go. She just generally loves to paint, and aims to paint cool stuff she wants to see.

Sunshine can just as easily be found reading a fairytales on a train or being that weird girl that’s setup an easel in everyones way.
