Josephine Dempsey is a contemporary illustrator based in Melbourne. Josephine uses watercolour to create art novae inspired illustrated thoughts with a comic book Roy Lichtenstein twist. The combination of which creates beautiful pieces that are whimsical. Inspired by music posters and other silk screens her work is strongly focused on concepts and ideas.
Currently Josephine is working with other conemporary illustrators to establish a creative collective of artists called “OH MY!”. The group is strongly focused on building up a sense of community and culture through illustration, art, craft and jewellery.
Recently Josephine has finished off as series of illustrations for a children’s’ storybook based on her “Wild Child” cousin. She is hoping that the book can one day be published to open up children’s’ minds to the world of creativity as well as to promote enthusiasm for reading.
In the future Josephine hopes to use her unique style to make a fully illustrated picture book for a band based on their lyrics to be sold with their album.
