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, watercolour, pastel and acrylic combined with digital collage and effects. In her work Lemady is inspired by the textures and patterns she sees and collects in the Swiss rural villages and countryside around her. Lemady manipulates painted textures as well as collage elements such as old wooden shingles, vintage fabrics or 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.
