Founder & Director of ELK Prints
Elizabeth is a graphic designer and illustrator. She has a 1st class honours degree in Design from UNSW. After graduating she worked in a larger design studio setting creating work for corporate and commercial clients where she learnt a lot about branding and honed her print media skills across a full spectrum of job types.
She started her own business, ELK Prints, in 2014 designing for magazine publications, branding for small businesses and pursuing her dreams of painting and creating her own original imagery. Her passion for paper, illustration, typography and layout design led her towards the field of event stationery, creating designs for weddings and parties that married these skill sets together. She is currently working with couples around Australia to tell their unique love stories via invitations and event decor and her work has been featured in leading bridal magazines and party blogs.
Elizabeth loves working in watercolours, brush and ink and is inspired by the diversity of the botanical world. She believes in craftsmanship, in doing things beautifully and with style. An explorer at heart she thrives on creative briefs that allow her to discover the story behind a business or the individuals whose event she is working on to create something that reflects and tells that story. Her style is artisanal, textural, organic and delicate with brushstrokes as unique and individual as those she works with.
Nura’s second collection, released in June 2018, is inspired by our gorgeous Australian wildlife. Our exclusive prints for this collection were created in collaboration with Lollilu Studio.
The four prints available in this collection are The Platypus, The Kangaroo, The Cockatoo and The Freshwater Turtle.

Her eye for detail and perseverance to translate it into her work has been consistent.
After moving to Australia a decade back, she lived in a beautiful townhouse and started painting the beautiful flora and fauna around her.
This, combined with her passion for watercolor painting, gave her the fuel to start her formal training after which she never looked back. Watercolour art is now her zeal and passion.

Mei is a Melbourne based freelance illustrator. She specialises in botanic art, beauty and fashion illustration. The art mediums Mei uses include watercolour, ink, gouache and coloured pencil. Mei loves English bulldogs, roller coasters and board games.
Mei has always loved art as far as she could remember. However, after finishing Year 12, she abandoned her paintbrushes to further her studies and career. 3 years ago, she decided to take a break from work and started painting again. A year later, she had her first gallery exhibition and all her artworks were sold! It was that very moment that made her realise that this could be the start of something bigger. And in 2015, Made on Sundays was founded, this was the best decision she had ever made.
