About

Hi, I'm Illyri, or Rhi if you know me. I am an artist and illustrator from Melbourne, Australia. I create my own art using a wide variety of mediums such as acrylic paint, oil paint, watercolor, graphite pencil and digital art; with an ever changing preference. My biggest inspirations come from folklore surrounding fairies and small mythical creatures, as well as the nature of human emotions and mental journeys. I completed a Diploma of Illustration in 2013 and spent several years working in Animation for film and games. Since mid 2020, I have been running painting classes for all ages and skill levels at Paint With Me in studios. I love teaching art to all ages and helping people discover their creativity.
