5 minutes with…. Maus Haus

Some words with the star of the embroidery collab

The second drop of the Percival × Maus Haus collaboration will be dropping later this month. We chatted to the artist and illustrator about her journey so far.

In 4 sentences tell us about you.
I am an artist/illustrator based out of Brisbane, Australia. I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember, my parents were always so encouraging growing up and were constantly buying me art supplies. My career turned towards UX/UI design, and while I still love the field and one day will move back into it, I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to be a full time artist – which is the ultimate dream of mine. 

What piece of art took you the longest to create?
My dad’s van mural definitely took the longest, with 3 of us working on it for 8 hours straight. It was so much fun getting to work with my dad on the design and then painting it with him and my sister, and listening to music with some beers – that’s the side of art that I love.

“I feel like my favourite colour changes a lot depending on where and how I see it, however I find myself always coming back to green. It’s so warm, humbling, gentle, and to me represents life and growth.”
Maus Haus

What work are you most proud of and why?
‘12 Landscapes’ for sure. When I first painted it, it was at the start of the pandemic and at a time where I was starting to hone in on my style. I could finally take the time I needed to focus on what I wanted my work to represent – a love for our earth and it’s colours. It’s also the piece that opened me up to a wider audience, and more people started engaging with my work. It remains my most requested print to date! 

What’s your favourite colour and why?
Green (at the moment). I feel like my favourite colour changes a lot depending on where and how I see it, however I find myself always coming back to green. It’s so warm, humbling, gentle, and to me represents life and growth.
