Presenting the Jacqui Lee Collection
Meet the Artist: Interview with Jacqui Lee
Working with the talented illustrator Jacqui Lee is always a pleasure and we've been looking forward to the release of her wedding collection for Hello!Lucky. Naturally, the designs reflect her imaginative style perfectly. From her cheerful color palettes to her distinguished hand-painted characters, each suite is just as romantic as the next. We’re thrilled to welcome Jacqui Lee to our family of guest wedding designers and hope you’ll fall in love with her collection just as we have.
What was your inspiration for this collection?
A lot of my inspiration came from imagery I associate with spring. I was working on this in the middle of a rainy and gloomy winter, so it seemed natural that all the ideas I was sketching down were bright and fun.

Did you like designing for a wedding collection?
Yes! I think there is so much opportunity to get really creative when designing for weddings. I've been seeing a lot of really great wedding work lately, so it was a ton of fun to try my hand at it. I was really trying to get into different niche personalities for each suite, and I hope that people can really connect with them.
What usually inspires your illustrations?
I'm always very inspired by the work of mid-century designers and illustrators.

If you had to pick one, which suite would you choose?
Honestly, it's a tough choice. I worked on all of the suites simultaneously so they sort of grew off one another, yet there are separate elements in each that I really like. However, my initial starting point for the whole collection was the Flora and Fauna design, so I would have to say it's closest to me.
You illustrate so many adorable animals, is there anything behind that? Which is your favorite to illustrate?
That's funny because I never considered myself an illustrator who especially enjoyed drawing animals until they started showing up everywhere in my work. I decided to just embrace it, and then it became very natural for me to start using animals as different personalities. As of yet, I don't think I have a favorite...but bears have been popping up a lot in my work lately.
