About us

We, Santiago Sunbird are an art, illustration and design duo based at The Windsor Workshop in Melbourne, made up of two sisters Bree and Sarah Hankinson. We provide creative services with a handmade, illustrated feel.

Things that collectively float our boat are celebrations (obvs!), arts, communication, food, illustration, community, worldly things, fashion, cultural development and diversity, travelling and music.

Santiago Sunbird Fiestas was created out of a love of all things party! We create wedding and event stationery from water colour illustrations that have a hand-made, personal and original feel. You can choose to personalise your package from our collection or we can work together on a bespoke package just for you! If this sounds like something you’re after, come in and have a chat with us over a nice glass of bubbles and we can create you the most amazing package you’ve ever imagined!




Meet Sarah…
Sarah is one of Australia’s most prominent fashion illustrators. Her images have graced the pages of Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and Elle. She’s also a hit with Harrods, Old Navy, Paul Mitchell, David Jones, Portmans and Maybelline. You can see more of her work here.

Meet Bree…
With more than 10 years experience in the industry, Bree Hankinson brings a wealth of knowledge to the Santiago Sunbird label. When she’s not designing, you’ll probably find her exploring a far flung corner of the globe, working with Fotokids in Guatemala or hanging out with her little fam.
