About Simone

Simone Madigan, blogger, designer and dreamer behind States of Nature will be your teacher.

Simone has worked with Photoshop and Illustrator for a long time, designing everything from logos and websites to fabrics and homewares. She is also an experienced teacher, and has taught at design colleges in the areas of Graphic Design, Textile Design and Digital Illustration. 

You can read profiles about Simone's work on the States of Nature blog by Craft Victoria, The Finders Keepers, Peppermint Magazine, and indie.com. Her work has been featured in magazines and newspapers including Frankie, Real Living, House and Garden, Inside Out, Good Weekend, The Age, and the Sydney Morning Herald.

Simone's philosophy towards these workshops is simple:

"Focus on learning the techniques that are relevant to your work as it stands right now. Leave all the rest until later. It is very easy to be intimidated by this complex software, but if you learn the basics you have so much power to improve your visual style and be a better designer."

Simone has a Degree in Graphic Design (B.A.), a Diploma in Education in Design and Technology (Dip. Ed.) and a Masters in Printmaking (M.Phil).

We hope you can join us for these three fantastic workshops!
