Behind the Brand - Sheree from Whimsy Kaleidescope

Whimsy Kaleidescope Print

It's no secret that at Cocoa & Thread, we looooove Sheree's work.  Sheree is the amazing surface designer and illustrator at Whimsy Kaleidescope.

Her unique designs sometimes start as pieces of paper and are transformed into beautiful abstract patterns.  Sheree also has a talent in creating beautiful digitally drawn portraits that capture the lives of those featured in a magnificent way.  She is based in Victoria and if you follow her on Insta, you will have seen that she has 2 adorable pugs.

Sheree's artwork currently features in our Paper Fireworks, Plant lovers and our upcoming Mixtape collection (which you might have spied a sneak peek of on our Instagram feed), however there are many more designs to come!

I asked Sheree to answer some questions so we can get to know her better, keep reading to discover more.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I find my inspo from cutting and pasting or maybe seeing a shape or colour that sparks an idea. Sometimes its from listening to music and I also get lots of ideas from day dreaming. I feel like I'm most creative in the evenings when I allow myself to just drop out of my head a little bit and just make for fun.

What is your favourite book to read?

Mostly I listen to non fiction audiobooks. One of the most memorable books that helped me on my creative journey was Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. My all time favorite fiction book is The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger. 

What is the last show you binge watched?

High Fidelity with Zoe Kravitz, but I'm constantly rewatching Gilmore Girls.

Pineapple on pizza?

Nope!
