About Freya

Hello!

I'm a kid from the Central Victorian goldfields, with roots in big smoke Melbourne, the Pacific Northwest and currently Hobart.

My creative practices largely explore goddess mythology, modern spirituality and the relationship between women and their dress as a form of divine, personal expression. It seeks to envision a bold and unforgiving form of femininity that is inclusive and aligned with the expansiveness of cosmic creativity.

I find inspiration from lavish period fashion, flora, surrealism, dreams, ancient history and mysteries such as astrology, boulder opal, witchcraft and all manner of natural phenomena.

I am currently on the path of reimagining my illustrations as tangible experiences by creating unique, wearable pieces of apparel for all ages.

I graduated in February, 2017 with a Bachelor of Communication Design majoring in typography and publication.

I have previously received a Certificate II in Applied Fashion Design. I like to dabble in pattern making, photography, styling, visual merchandising and digital design.

I held my first solo exhibition in April, 2017 at The Corner Store Merchants in Castlemaine, Victoria.

 

About the Illustrations

My illustrations are part of an evolving life series. They act as a tool for the foundation of my creative exploration, spiritual unfolding and daily de-stressing; they are a free form method of self induced colour therapy and meditation.

I channel what cannot be seen and personify it in various forms of the feminine archetype, as inspired by dreams, mythology, psychedelics and music.  Each drawing unfolds on the page without prior intention, and with it carries a story.

The illustrations are both an example of my obsessive appreciation for fashion, the idea of dress being a form of divine personal expression and a storytelling device through the ages, as well as a celebration of the magical creative process.
