Kelly Smith is an Australian Illustrator, working predominantly in fashion and beauty.
She worked with numerous luxury brands and high profile clients including: Valentino, Armani, Maybelline New York, Jenny Packham, H&M, VOGUE, NET-A-PORTER, and The Sunday Times STYLE. Her work has been published in the likes of ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, In Style, Russh, Flare, NET-A-PORTER magazine, TASCHEN’s ‘Illustration Now! FASHION’ and most recently in her own illustrated book series with Laurence King Publishers titled ‘Sticker Fashionista’.
With a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Tasmanian School of Art, Kelly majored in photography and graphic design, but reverted back to her love of drawing after graduating. She ran a blog and launched her career after being interviewed in Vogue about an exhibition she was mounting.
Kelly’s approach is mainly traditional, with 90 per cent of the work completed using a graphite pencil. She then scans the drawing in, adding colour and tweaking the image using Photoshop. Her compositions vary – usually it’s a case of highlighting one focal area that’s full of beauty, but in other cases she builds up a scene to surround it.
Her images are intricate, finely detailed pencil illustrations, incorporating pops of digital colour. They are soft and feminine in tone and content.

Fashion illustration :
“I wanna know how she could make a man lose his mind
Bet she’s beautiful
And I bet she’s got that touch
Makes you fall in love
With the smell of her perfume
I could love her, too, like you
And I can almost hear her laugh
Curving on her back for you, for you”
“She’s imperfect but she tries
She is good but she lies
She is hard on herself
She is broken and won’t ask for help
She is messy but she’s kind
She is lonely most of the time
She is all of this mixed up
And baked in a beautiful pie
She is gone but she used to be mine”
