Is my artwork for you?
Are you in awe of the natural world?
Does your world expand when you come face to face with a beautiful bird?
Does nature’s spring time explosion of colour and life, take your breath away?
Are you amused by the spirited behavior of the local wildlife?
Do you marvel at the endless beauty in natural form?
If yes, then you understand the inspiration behind my work.
I am an Australian based artist, illustrator and designer. My work tells a story through my engagement with the natural world, caputing the essence of sea life birds, botanicals and other wildlife. I borrow from a variety of illustrative traditions from around the world ... you will see elements of Japanese woodblocks, Persian miniatures and Chiaroscuro to name a few.
Originally born in New Zealand and now based in Sydney, Australia, creating art has been a life long passion. I have been constantly developing my art and design skills including both the formal and informal study of art and design. I have also undertaken professional work in the design industry.
I have never been able to figure out if I am a designer, an artist or an illustrator. My fine art is illustrative and my illustration is artsy ....
