Candice Leathem is an Australian artist and designer based in London, United Kingdom, where she has lived for the past two years. Graduating in 2013, she studied a Bachelor of Visual Communication, specialising in illustration at the University of South Australia. She began her career as a freelance illustrator, whilst also working in fashion and jewellery development. Now solely focusing on her artistic aspirations, she still draws inspiration from her background in fashion, in addition to popular culture and travel. Initially focusing on portraiture and fashion illustrations, her work has expanded into a variety of subjects including the natural world and cityscapes. She consistently uses a rich and complimentary colour palette to create contrast and an overall sense of harmony. While she creates her artworks digitally, she finds herself heavily influenced by traditional art techniques and media, which serve as an underlying theme in her work. Candice is continually striving to learn new techniques and broaden and evolve her art.
