With a fine art background Innocent lived in Japan for many years where she explored the streets endlessly, picking up Japanese folklore and using the time to fill her head with characters. During this time her illustration style was totally overhauled, thanks to the warm embrace of Japanese chibi culture.
This Japanese influence mixes with Innocent’s first love of Miffy and Richard Scarry books and Australian flora and fauna. She combines these diverse references to create her totally unique characters that are loaded with humour, charm and the Innocent trademark of oval faces and wide set eyes. Either digital or analogue, her worlds are adored by adults and children alike.
Innocent juggles parenthood, co-owning indie fashion brand Chiba Ghosts with her partner, running an online shop, personal exhibitions and commercial projects from her home in the hills of the Dandenong Ranges, Victoria.
When she’s not drawing you will find her thinking about drawing while exploring the forest with her young son and snappy Corgi Pickles McGerkin. Andrea Innocent loves drawing, it’s her happy place.
