About | Bio


Artist and designer Sheree Dornan works from her studios and business BLOCK D STUDIOS in Myaree Western Australia. In 2016 Sheree relocated from her PS Art Space studio and retail boutique Love in Tokyo in Fremantle to her new work space to focus more on designing, creating and production. Prior to establishing Love in Tokyo Sheree devoted much time to painting, drawing, exhibiting, contract design work, Architectural illustration work and lecturing in Building Design.
Sheree’s art, textiles and garments are in held private collections throughout Australia, Europe, United States, Asia and India.

Sheree’s work is varied – including

Surface design – applied to textiles for garment designs and interior products

Textile design – creating textile work for exhibitions, installations and garments

Painting- working with a variety of mixed media Acrylic, watercolor, ink and pastels

Garment design – The garments Sheree designs and constructs are mostly one of a kind pieces or are limited edition produced as mini collections regularly throughout the year. Sheree’s work has an heirloom quality with attention to the smallest details and a conscious consideration of minimal waste of materials and producing sustainable garments to be worn and treasured for years. The use of reclaimed items are often involved in either the design or construction process.

in 2013 and 2014 Sheree was invited to have her work published in two books by international design author Bradley Quinn
