Nadia Rosenthal is a Sydney based Illustrator with a passion for detail. Her work could be described as soft, sensual realism, exploring flora, fauna, femininity and the metaphysical. Nadia completed an advanced diploma of Illustration at the Design Centre Enmore in 2018 and is available for commissions with a recent piece appearing in the Breaking Through exhibition at The Australian Museum of Democracy.
Drawing inspiration from the detailed and the delicate, her work often reflects imagery conjured by furry critters, ethereal muses, cautionary fairytales, Surrealism, psychedelic tunes, the female form and childhood memories of bedtimes stories where beautiful illustrations danced across the pages and into fantastical dreams.
Nadia’s work usually begins with a detailed graphite drawing which is then coloured in Photoshop or a delicate watercolour base with coloured pencil and Copic markers employed to enhance the illustration. Textural elements are often applied to her work, adding depth and interest. She is happiest working at her desk, peacefully enjoying the company of her work.
