About Me
Hi, my name is Lee Sinclair I’m a 29 year old Freelance Graphic Designer born and bred in New Zealand. From a young age I was always interested in art and crafts. Throughout school I studied art and photography and at any opportunity would be making a ‘creative mess’. It wasn't until recently when I returned home to NZ after six years of being overseas I decided to follow my passion and really push the 'crafty side of me'.

You are My Sunshine

At present I'm working on a series of Russian doll drawings, mounted on patterned fabrics and framed. Various styles of jewelry using beads, wire & brass fittings. And a collection of highly detailed ink pen drawings consisting of patterned hearts and various other icons. Each piece is made with great care, attention to detail, and genuine love and passion.

Jandals - Original Drawing

What inspires me
I'm fascinated in intricate detail, patterns, textures, nature, anything vintage, typography and bright colours, so generally my works fall in to one or more of these categories.

Why I love what I do
I really enjoy making a product from start to finish, with no machines, very little tools and a lot of patience and hard work. It gives me great satisfaction to know people are enjoying my works. I love doing what I do, and really don't think I would want it any other way.
