…crazy plant lady, organised homebody and creative thinker here at The Ink Garden, a graphic design studio based in balmy (read: damn hot) Townsville, North Queensland - Australia.

Founded on a love of design and fueled by creative necessity, the studio was established in 2016 in pursuit of a more fulfilling family/career balance. With over a decade of graphic design experience within the print industry, stepping out in a freelance capacity after becoming a mother was a natural progression and one I’ve not looked back from. My time and creative space is shared with my husband, two darling daughters, our chocolate labradors and an ever-expanding collection of greenery.

Truly passionate about beautiful aesthetics, I am honest, genuine and a significant perfectionist whose hobbies include binge-watching true crime documentaries (forever to my detriment), weekend market foraging, mint-chip gelato (ice cream is a hobby, yes?) and filling every corner of my home with green, leafy friends.



Autumn tones (forever and always)

Gingham dresses - bonus points for pockets

Sunday morning almond croissants


Picture frames that aren’t hung straight

Sharks and any place they might reside (I’m looking at you, ocean)

Karaoke - all forms, across the board, no deal!


Collaborating with like-minded creatives to elevate their businesses, realise their full potential and watching their authentic, passion-fuelled stories unfold is something I’ll never tire of. With a minimalist, warm and earthy design style, successful design is so much more than pretty palettes and trendy typefaces. A combination of purposeful visual design solutions paired with message clarity and a consistent brand strategy is what will capture the imagination of your dream customers.



It was unbelievably amazing and easy to work with Kristen. I felt a connection to her work right away... We both brought ideas and elements together and melded them into something beautiful that is bigger than just me.

Her service and price was awesome. And I’m all about supporting local business. Highly recommend!
