About

Hello I am Lewis Brownlie, an artist from Rochdale, a small wet town in Northern England, I moved to Australia in 2014 and now live in Geelong, Victoria. I work mainly in pen on paper, and sometimes int computer.

Inspiration comes from everywhere, nature, architecture, geography, history and the rest. Though I work mostly on paper, I occasionally dabble in other mediums such as large wall murals, graphics for skateboards and T-shirt, wedding invites, digital illustrations or the internet. and if I’m feeling really special, in colour.

Clients include, The Melbourne Map, City of Melbourne, Melbourne University, Melbourne Library services, Governor of Victoria, Parliament of Victoria, The Johnston Collection Museum, Uber, Google, Melbourne International Arts Festival, Geelong Gallery & others…

For art commissions and enquiries please email me on – hellolewisbrownlie@gmail.com
