About Kerry Beazley

As a lifelong doodler, I am known for expressing my joy in an explosion of colour and fine detail.  My portfolio includes a mixed bag of raster and vector illustrations / surface pattern designs for licensing.  I work across many art mediums but never happier than with a fine-liner pen in hand , some watery colour and a crisp sheet of white paper. I also puddle along making watery, inky food illustrations and my spot illustrations were published for  "Eat Well, Be Well", a book by Matthew Simpson about eating for wellness. 

A career in clothing production as a designer and pattern maker fuelled a love of textiles and an addiction to illustration.  I have a tertiary qualification in teaching adult learners and experience teaching TAFE classes in clothing pattern making & CAD.  I currently teach how to make Doodle Stories on Skillshare and in-person workshops for kids and adults. Illustrating children's themes for wall art and bed linens is also my jam and one day I'd like to illustrate a children's book.

 

Ten  things about me:

  • I like happy-ending kids movies

  • I move the furniture around regularly

  • I honed my doodle skills during corporate management meetings

  • I have part of a finger missing

  • I did swimming training in the 70's with Australian swimming legend Shane Gould

  • I grew up in a country town that had only one shoe shop and no pizza place.

  • I have a close relationship with the creator of the universe.

  • I have 5 siblings

  • I live in the worlds most isolated capital city

  • I love bright, bold and sassy things 

I live in Fremantle, Western Australia with my amazing, long-suffering husband, an awesome, too-cool son and a brindle cat named Wicked.

You can find a collection of my  patterns  on Spoonflower and other bits of my work on instagram, Redbubble and Society6. I have another website that's all about gifts for cat-crazy humans at wickedtails.com.au.
