Have I ever told ya’ll how much I love interior illustrations? Because I do—they’re fascinating! You can learn so much about a person from the objects they own. It’s why I’m drawn to the illustrated homes of Liz Rowland. Simply called Interiors, they feature “small scenes from around the world.” There’s a window and a plant in Mexico, sunflowers in London, and a messy desk in Melbourne. Each has artifacts telling us about the person who inhabits the space, done in a style that recalls the great Jonas Wood.
Interiors is the result of Liz’s adventures. “In 2015 I left quit my job and left the U.K. to do some traveling,” she tells me. “I hadn’t painted for 4 years and I was determined to get back into it. In May 2016 I arrived in Australia with a backpack full of sketchbooks eager to get a fresh portfolio together.” Now, she is based in Melbourne and creates illustrations in gouache.
Liz sells a selection of her prints in her online shop.
