Bec Winnel enjoys being a commercial illustrator, particularly when clients push her into challenging new areas outside her comfort zone. With a background in design, she found her soft, light and beautiful illustration work was so much in demand this is now her full-time focus.
She enjoys creating beautiful and detailed portraits of imaginary women in imaginary worlds that celebrate the feminine spirit. They are often accompanied by elements of nature, fantasy and items from bygone eras.
Her colour palette is mostly soft, subdued pastels, and my mediums include pencil, pastel, watercolour and acrylic. To further enhance the mystery, her girls are often fading into or out of the background, as if they are nearly there, speaking to you from a distant place.
