I am an Illustrator and Graphic Designer based in Wellington, New Zealand.
Simply put it, I love to design and illustrate. I have been drawing since I was a kid.
My parents would often tell me the story of when I was a kid, they would buy me a pack of A4 and I would finish them in one sitting. Then when I finish the pack, I would go outside, grab a stick and draw on the ground.

When I got older, I followed my passion for arts and design by taking a Graphic Design course at a local design school. After graduating, I got a job as a part-time Graphic Designer and afterwards as a Junior Graphic Designer. Down the road I stumbled upon Etsy shop and saw how many illustrators and designers sell their own work and I wanted to be able to do that too. And so, here I am on Etsy!

My illustrative style is usually inspired by many things such as the symmettry, textures, muted tones and overlays found on 60's illustration, the silence of pastel colors, the colors and minimalism of Scandinavian interior design, and the texture and carefree feel of watercolor. As much as possible, I try to inject some of these qualities to my drawings to make it more unique but at the same time I am also developing my illustrative skills and style. After all, there is always room for improvement, right?

For my work, I usually use two different techniques. Traditional materials such as watercolor, gouache, markers, etc. And digital materials such as my trusty Wacom tablet and Adobe CC. Illustration and design, product photography and packaging is done by me while I use local professional print shops to get the work printed.

I will only be selling prints for now but I am excited to see what other items I will be selling in the future. And the hope is that you'll be a part of this journey.

My instagram account is instagram.com/zuremmeru where I will be sharing other illustrative and behind-the-scenes work. If you have any other questions or interested in commissioning me for some design and illustration work, or simply want to say "Hello!" then feel free to e-mail me at hello.zurem@gmail.com
