Cassis is a brand by British artist and designer Emilie Sheehan, who lives and works in Sydney.
Emilie mixes hand-drawn and watercolour with digital techniques to create playful and bold imagery. Her work captures and creates personalities, brings joy, and puts a smile on peoples’ faces.
Inspired by the unique, native wildlife and landscape in Australia, her range of funny and delightful Aussie prints showcase her love story to Australia. Her outsider’s perspective embraces the Aussie sense of fun and charm.
Emilie is a comedy obsessive, inspired by New Yorker cartoons, the energy of Quentin Blake, and the original Paddington Bear illustrations.
I will be selling my greeting cards and art prints which are designed and illustrated by me and printed locally in Sydney. I also sell tea towels and cotton baby onesies with my illustrations on. I come up with ideas for illustrations and designs, then draw and paint them by hand. I finish them digitally and then print them locally in Sydney and work closely with well-regarded printers. As everything is made locally, so there is a low carbon footprint.
These products are made in, and represent Australia and are the perfect memento to a wonderful country.
