Mary and the Locks is an illustrator and designer, but she also occasionally cuts & pastes, animates, art-directs, sews and builds. Basically: she creates. It can turn into anything from a screen-printed poster of the Rotterdam skyline, to an illustration for commercial branding, to a huge film prop sculpture.
She works in different media, but always in her own style, with her own view on the world. Preferring paint and paper over tablets and computers, there is a homemade, nostalgic feeling to her works. Fresh, funny and playful (but not only for kids) and more importantly: with a positive message. With her work she wants to make this dog-eat-dog world a little more bearable, by showing people how pretty life can be.
