Kimi’s creations are based on photographs, and she’s known to take inspiration from a song, a colour, or even just the atmosphere of a place. She has a keen interest in the 50s and 60s, fashion and home decor, and she is also fascinated with all things manual. The fabrics, clothing and hairstyles in her illustrations give them a clean, light aesthetic, while still being precise and detailed.
