Fionna Fernandes - International lifestyle and fashion illustrator. Sydney

Sydney, NSW , Australia
Social Reach Instagram: 21K Fionna Fernandes is a Sydney-based illustrator who enjoys drawing a variety of subject matter: portraits, stickers, landscapes, lifestyle and animals for clients in fashion, editorial, advertising and more. Everything she creates has a touch of fun to it as she selects key details to highlight in a rainbow of colour, adding in patterns as a flourish that give her work its highly individual visual language.
Taking inspiration from Lisa Frank, Super Mario and My Little Pony, you know you’re in for a colourful ride with the young Australian artist. The 90s, Japanese culture, and the artists Laura Callaghan, Hattie Stewart and Georgia Perry are just some of her influences. Fionna has a Bachelor degree in Design in Visual Communication from the University of Technology in Sydney. All the elective courses she took were focused on illustration.

Approach

Fionna’s work combines hand-drawn line work and acrylic paints with digital colouring for the best of both worlds. She often creates collaged backdrops, adding stickers to the compositions to enhance that mixed media feel.

Style

Playful, fun and energetic, Fionna generates a youthful aesthetic. She enjoys drawing attention to certain aspects of the female face – the eyes, lips and hair – using brighter colours and patterns. This gives her portraits their unique feel and some extra impact.

Client list

Some of Fionna’s clients include Nickelodeon, Avon, Fanta, Toyota, LEGO, Chupa Chups, Kiko Milano, Glamour UK, My Little Pony, Ad Age, Scholastic, Hask, U by Kotex and Women’s Running.

Working with Fionna was a dream. Even though she was on the other side of the world (I'm in DC and she is in Australia) she was super responsive to emails and quick on edits. I love her playfulness with color and pattern - it was exactly what I was looking for.
Erin Douglas: Art Director, Women’s Running
It was an excellent experience working with Fionna. She was very professional, and the work was top quality and exceeded our expectations, also it was delivered early! As a commissioner, I can not ask for a better experience.
Paul Blachford: Art Editor, MacFormat
I recently commissioned Fionna to produce a portrait of one of the employees of the agency that I work at, I chose Fionna because of her fresh and original style. During the process Fionna went above and beyond of what would normally be required from an artist to help make the portrait really look like the person whom it was intended for. I would recommend working with Fionna any time and look forward to working with her again.
Martin McGinn: Senior Creative Producer, Grey London
I recently worked with Fionna for the first time and it was a great experience. She is very professional and quick to turn around multiple sketches and in the end an amazing final piece. Her job was to bring some pop and fun to what would have been a typical photo solution to an opener for a story about environmentalist Rachel Carson. I would recommend working with Fionna and look forward to working with her again.
Albert Amigo: Senior Art Director, Scholastic Inc. Classroom Magazines
It was a pleasure to work with Fionna. She was quick to respond to our requests and to turn around our notes. She transformed our talent into awesome illustrations and the addition of her art to our design elevated our key art to another level.
Sandy Goijburg: VP off-air creative , Nickelodeon
Fionna was an absolute pleasure to work with! She took direction very well, she was patient as the creatives on my team figured out exactly the direction we wanted to go with the project, and delivered a final piece that made stakeholders very happy. She added a fun flair to an already bright and colorful character, and I am sure the Nick Jr. audience will enjoy another way to experience Sunny Day.
Myriam Wilson: Coordinator, Production Management, Nick Jr
It was a pleasure to work with Fionna. She was very good at communication and made sure to check with me every step of the way. The artwork is absolutely gorgeous and I'd love to work with her again in the future. Thank you!!

I just had a wonderful experience collaborating with Ms. Fernandes on my project. Not only was she very friendly, but she also followed direction extremely well, had great response time with any questions or concerns I had, and most importantly she has worked the fastest out of any illustrator I've ever come in contact with. This could have been a challenging piece for some, with lots of great detail, but Ms. Fernandes handled it with ease, talent, and with the up most professionalism. But you know the one thing that has amazed me the most after receiving my artwork from her and studying it right now was despite the concept I gave her which to some could be perceived as dark, she injected so much life, fun, and her own personality into it that in turn it has cause me to redirect the tone of my project her piece is based on into something I think could be even more entertaining, and greater; that to me is the mark of not only an exceptional artist, but a great one. Fionna Fernandes is AMAZING!

Fionna is great to work with. She delivered a final image that exceeded our expectations on a tricky project. She was hard working and carried out all amends to our exacting standards quickly and efficiently. Really fantastic illustrations and a dream to work with.
Claire Clifton Coles: Picture Director, Glamour Magazine UK
I have admired Fionna's beautiful illustrations for a while now, and was very excited when she agreed to do an illustration of me for my therapy website. Fionna and her agent, Alice, were extremely friendly and easy to deal with, both communicating with me very clearly and quickly. Fionna seemed able to put things together faster than I expected, but always with great care and attention to detail - she clearly wanted to make sure that she understood exactly what I was looking for in the final design, and she was very obliging in making sure I had the files in the requested formats. I am very happy with the final result and look forward to commissioning further illustrations in the future.
