Lemady is a freelance Illustrator, originally from the UK, now living in Switzerland. Lemady works in a mixed-media collage approach, using hand-drawn/painted elements in graphite, ink and acrylic combined with digital collage. In her work Lemady is inspired by the textures and patterns she sees and collects, her work is particularly distinctive for its use of textures found in the rural farms and villages of the Swiss alps. Lemady manipulates elements such as old wooden shingles and cowhide, to create a sense of resonance, memory and atmosphere in her pictures. Her fresh, collage style is suited to a range of editorial and publishing projects, particularly within Children’s Publishing.
