WINNER - UK WALLSAUCE WALL MURAL COMPETITION!

I’m so excited to announce that I am the winner of the UK company Wallsauce wall mural competition! Thank you so much to all the people who voted for my designs. I am very grateful for all the support you have given me while I build my surface pattern design and illustration business. I think I’ve found my niche in designing wall art, whether it be wallpaper, murals or prints and I would love to do more, so please get in touch if you would love to work with me.

My entire collection is now available on the Wallsauce website at https://www.wallsauce.com/designer-wallpaper-murals/kelly-kratzing

My experience at the A/W 19 Brisbane Finders Keepers Market!

I just finished a busy 3 days at the Brisbane Finders Keepers - my first big art and design market. I was able to meet some lovely people and learn from other exhibiting artists. Overall, the feedback on my designs was very positive and it was great to get that feedback in person (it can be lonely in the freelance world)! While the experience was positive overall, it appears that the retail market in Australia is in a bit of a slump, so please ‘think small'‘ for your next purchase, as every purchase makes a big difference to a small business.

I would love to collaborate with more shops who are interested in wholesale purchases of my products, so please get in touch so I can tell you more!

New wallpaper collection with Emily Ziz!

I’m very excited that my new wallpaper collection that I have been working on for the past 6 months has just launched with the Sydney-based design studio, Emily Ziz! The collection was inspired by the Australian fauna and flora, and specifically, my love for the amazing black cockatoo! The entire collection can be viewed here: https://www.emilyziz.com/print-catalogue/audreys-garden
