The work at Northlands:
Jimi is known across the city for her vibrant and eclectic style. Her monochromatic mural ‘Head In The Clouds’ was a challenge, as her murals are typically known for their bursts of colour. The inspiration behind this piece was to create a space where there’s always friendly faces so you’re never really on your own. “I’m a colourful gal! So I’m pretty stoked that I was still able to create something playful even without my colours.”
Design is her first love, art is her mistress. An independent designer + illustrator who don’t need no man. Focused on working with people who are as passionate about what they do as her. Creating funky designs that engage, empower and educate across print, screen and space. There is always something new to spot when looking at her work!
