Irene Tan is the artist/creator behind the label Missy Minzy. She is a freelance graphic designer and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. Drawing and designing have always been part of my life. She loves creating things which make people smile!
She originally from Malaysia and now proud to call Melbourne her home, where she currently a work at home mum. She divides her efforts between making her daily creative masterpieces, with a loving husband and their 2 precious daughters. :)
Irene has more than 10 years of professional working experience in various industries from graphic designer, packaging designer as well as advertising designer..and now illustrator with a heartbeat.
All of Irene's illustrations are hand drawn. She colours them either digitally or with traditional media, such as watercolour or designer gouache. Then she gives her work a special touch by enhancing the details with some textures or surface pattern design. Irene's style and design is always changing, depending on what inspires her!
Since starting Missy Minzy, one of Irene's biggest highlights was when her recent artwork submission made it to Lilla Rogers Studio's Top 50 Semi-Finalists in the Global Talent Search, in August, 2013. This is a well-known illustration agency who representing artists internationally!
