Paula Kuka has been a landscape architect for thirteen years, working in the UK, China, and her native Australia. In 2016, after having her first child, she established Common Wild, where she combines all her obsessions: designing spaces that are beautiful, unexpected, dramatic, and thought-provoking, and drawing illustrations that celebrate all the things she loves. In 2017, she had her second child and survived the wild and hazy early days by documenting their life in a series of cartoons. What began as a personal project took on a life of its own when she discovered that the drawings were not only very therapeutic for her, but also resonated with women all over the world.
