From fashion illustration to portraits and product imagery, Debs Lim is a versatile artist producing work that is as vibrant as it is imaginative. The images she creates are clear and graphic thanks to her background in graphic design but have a charmingly tactile quality to them which engages viewers with her clients’ brands, leaving them wanting more.
Based in Brisbane, Australia, Debs is enthusiastic, organised and deadline-oriented, and clients love her friendly yet conscientious approach. She loves to draw and make things, and grew up in a creative household influenced by her art director father and copywriting mother.
Debs has a Diploma in Fashion Design and Technology from TAFE Queensland, and a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from SAE Institute.
Procreate is Debs’ tool of choice, sketching her images and then using the pencil brushes to generate a realistic handmade finish. She works with a warm colour palette, gravitating towards pinks, reds and yellows.
While the hand of the artist always shines through in Debs’ illustrations, she strives for realism, a sense of beauty and a touch of humour as well. This unique combination is what gives her work its impact.
Client list Debs has worked for a range of clients including Penguin Random House, SpaceNK, Hatchett Books, St Martins Publishing, Snapchat, and Taco Bell.
