Is my artwork for you?
Are you awed by the natural world? Do your endorphins explode when you come face to face with a beautiful bird? Does natures spring time explosion of colour and life take your breath away? Are you amused by the brazen behavior of the local wildlife? Do you marvel at the endless beauty in natural forms? Do you seek out connections with the natural world?
If you answer to any of these is yes, then you understand the inspiration behind my work.
I am an Australian based artist, illustrator and designer. My work tells a story though the natural and man made world, capturing 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 formal study and informal study of art, design and 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....
