To say Kelly Thompson is a multidisciplinary creative would be an understatement. With an honours degree in photography, previous experience working as a MAC makeup artist, a successful illustration career and brand collaborations that include designing a jewellery range, developing textile print and hosting events, she is the complete creative package.
Following a successful career working as a fashion photographer in New Zealand, Thompson moved to Australia in 2010 to pursue creative endeavours and became a recognised illustrator working for brands such as Escada, Covergirl, MAC, Maybelline, Bloomberg, Mini and Formula One Racing. As her work became more in demand, she found herself working full-time as a freelance artist, invited as a keynote speaker and host at popular creative events and collaborating with fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands.
In 2018 Thompson founded Maker’s Mrkt, an online platform that encourages people to shop small and support independent makers and designers.
Today, Thompson is in demand for not only her illustration but her broad creative abilities; she is enthusiastic, has a unique and colourful personal style and an engaged audience in the fashion and creative community.
