About the girl

Hi, I’m Steph and I love to draw. Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, I’m lucky to be married to my best friend, with a little girl toddling about at our heels. When I’m not sketching up a storm, I enjoy nothing better than lazing about on the sandy beaches and at the lovely cafes that surround my home.

About the blog

Founded in 2014, I set up Make and Tell to share my love of crafts and DIY. But as the years passed, I came to realise I had an even greater passion for illustration and so this site morphed into a place where I can upload my latest work and share free art for you to use in your own projects.

My main goal is to brighten your day with playful designs and colours. If you leave here filled with inspiration and armed with new ways to create, then I’m a happy gal!

Known for my cheeky, fun style, through Make and Tell I’ve partnered with brands like Etsy, Urban Outfitters, Mollie Magazine and The Reject Shop to come up with unique ways to get creative.
