Fashion Illustrator: Kelly Smith

What a true gem I discovered today in the treasure chest of pinterest...
the truly gifted fashion illustrator,
Kelly Smith


Upon seeing the above images on my pinterest board, I knew I wanted to see more and to find out more about the lady behind this stunning work. 
An Australian from Tasmania, Kelly is a graduate of fine art and a full time freelance illustrator. Her talent has earned her appearances in many publications, the most prestigious (in my opinion), Vogue Australia!! 
And not only has she appeared in the magazine but they are one of her clients along with net-a-porter.
Yes, her client, which means she regularly does illustrations for them.
And above all she puts them on her blog for all of us who can't get Vogue AU very easily, to see and indulge and to ooo and ahhh at. 
{If you haven't been over there, I'd highly recommend doing so}.   
And if all this wasn't enough... She has an Etsy shop where you can buy limited edition prints of some of her various beautifully drawn and illustrated fashion images. 
Below are a select few offered in her shop, along with the inspiration...
