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, 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 whimsical style which combines a variety of digital and organic media, has seen her win many awards including a Tui for Best Album Cover in the Vodafone NZ music awards. Her illustration is inspired by exploration, travel, nature and a library of vintage children’s books. 


Over the years their creative passion for illustration has led to the birth of August Avenue, a boutique stationary brand which with the help of a few friends launched in 2012. Find out more at: www.augustavenue.co.nz

The Picture Garden is represented globally by Eastwing, a UK based agency representing some of the finest talent in the illustration industry. www.eastwing.co.uk
