Jayden and Angela Keoghan are a husband and wife creative duo who with their powers combined, run The Picture Garden – an illustration studio based in the beautiful New Zealand countryside. Although they live not far from Antarctica, the clients they work with are based all over the world – Australia, Hong Kong, America, the UK and Europe. They create illustration for a variety of areas including editorial, advertising and publishing. Jayden steers the ship as Creative Director while Angela the Illustrator draws and creates magic on paper.

Her illustration is inspired by exploration, travel, nature and a library of vintage children’s books.
