Gemma Milly at the Lionheart Launch

In Events, Illustration on December 7, 2011 at 8:56 am

Gemma Milly is an extremely talented illustrator. Her work is similar to a real life paradise, wrapped in a fairytale. I love her style and I’m extremely excited to hear Gemma talk about the process and inspiration behind her work, as well as purchase her wares. Excitingly, I’ve just heard that Gemma will have a selection of The Aviary‘s goods with her too!

Hello, could you tell us your name and what you create?
I’m Gemma Milly, and I’m a fashion and portrait illustrator, wedding stationery designer and maker of pretty gifts.

When did you first hear about Lionheart Magazine?
Helen and I first met working from Amelia’s magazine and have kept in touch ever since (yay!). So I’ve known about Lionheart for quite a while and am glad I can finally let the cat out the bag now.

Where will you be coming from to party with the lions?
From Alton in Hampshire.

What will you be doing/selling at the Lionheart Magazine launch party?
I’ll be selling my prints, greetings cards and gifts in the afternoon. Then at 5pm I’ll be taking a live illustration session and talking about how I create my portraits. After that I’ll be letting my hair down!

What are you looking forward to in Lionheart Magazine
Touching the gorgeous thick paper and drooling over all the pretty features. Then giving it pride of place, first in the stack, by my bedside.
