Irene Tan is the artist | illustrator behind the label Missy Minzy. This is the place where she gets to showcase what she loves creating and that makes her happy!
She has more than 15 years of professional working experience in various industries from graphic designer, packaging designer as well as advertising designer..and now illustrator with a heartbeat.
Originally from Malaysia, but lived in Melbourne for over a decade before relocated to live in Canberra, with two gorgeous daughters and a loving husband. Irene adores creating things which make people smile!
Missy Minzy was born prior to her first pregnancy with the eldest daughter. Magical Mushrooms and Minzy Girl were some of her earlier work. All of her illustrations were typically hand drawn. She usually coloured them either digitally or with traditional media, such as watercolour or designer gouache. She tends to enhance the details of her work by adding some textures or surface pattern design. Her style and design are always changing, depending on whatever inspires her!
Being able to create during the multi-tasking commitment bringing up her children are important for her as it keeps her sane and most of all, happy!! After all, life is but a dream :)
One of the highlights since owning Missy Minzy has to be Irene's recent submission artwork had made it to the Lilla Rogers Studio's Top 50 Semi-Finalists in the Global Talent Search August Year 2013. This is one of the well known illustration agency representing artists internationally!
Irene is a strong believer who works hard and excel what she is good at. She currently working on building up her portfolio. Hoping one day she will be handpicked and being represented by an illustration agent. She would like to see some of her illustration and artwork going places where it continues bringing joys into others' heart just as much as she created it.
Thank you for reading and getting to know me :)
