Looking for some original, Australian-made art?

Trying to find the perfect gift for a puppy or poultry-loving person?

Need to add some digital quirkiness to your branding or book project?

 

You’ve come to the right place. I’m Selina Zwolsman (Selina Zed if it’s easier), and I’m the Redland-based artist sitting behind the Very Zed logo.

As you may have guessed by my portfolio, I’m a chicken-loving lady passionate about colour, texture and pattern. I work in all kinds of media, but my three favourites are pen and ink (look for the black and white illustrations), gouache and hand-embellished digital art (the playful pet portraits).

I illustrate and paint a range of subjects (just ask me), but I have a particular fondness for feathers, fur and florals.

In my career as a designer, I’ve seen many rooms brightened by art and houses transformed into homes with the installation of meaningful pieces. I know a painting or illustration can spark joy and bring a day-changing smile to the homeowner and their guests.

I sincerely love making every mark in my illustrations and paintings and hope the joy in the process is clear. If my work stops your scroll, invites a curious squint or prompts a grin, my job is done. And if a painting or illustration makes it to your home, you’ll know you’ve sparked a smile over here, too.

I`m working on a ‘proper portrait’ of this precious pooch but had to share this 𝘸𝘪𝘯𝘥𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘱𝘵 #linedrawing first…
What do you think?

Aaaand because I have to even up my grid or I won`t be able to sleep tonight, here’s one more #linedrawing of a beautiful bovine. What do you think of this one?

And another #linedrawing for the grid. I`m very lucky to have a friend with an incredible farm and the friendliest cows. 🐂🤎🐂
I snapped some great pics on my last visit and have many beautiful references for a series of cow paintings. 🐄🐂🐄 If only I had a few 𝘮𝘰𝘰 hours in the day. 🤦🏻‍♀️😝

I haven`t had much time for art lately, but I have enjoyed playing with some line drawings here and there… There is something very soothing about simplifying an illustration into just a few squiggles… 🖤 I think I`ll add this exercise into the workshop I`m planning - should be fun! 🤓

If I ever get time to paint again, this play painting could be the start of something new. Dare I say ‘watch this space’? #brownpaperpainting #gouachepainting #joy ...

I finished this little cutie a short while back but haven’t had a chance to post.

Looks like a sweet little soul, doesn’t he? 😍
