Location Wingecarribee Southern Highlands
Artist Type Semi Professional
Wildlife, animal and bird artist specialising in realistic fine detail pen and ink drawings as well as mixed media, acrylic paintings and exclusive merchandise. Edition fine art prints, originals, commissions and pet portraits.
My love of nature, wildlife and creativity has gradually evolved into my signature style of finely detailed pen and ink drawing and more recently into pastel, charcoal and acrylics.
All my work portrays a realistic approach to wildlife, animals and birds; I am completely in awe of the incredible beauty and complexity in our natural world.
Editions are printed locally using the latest digital technology on 100% cotton rag fine art paper or stretched canvas.
I have also enjoyed bringing my love of colour and design into a growing range of unique merchandise, exclusive to my Canadian manufacturer. My designs capture the essence of anything beautiful that has caught my eye.
I am a largely self-taught artist with a Certificate III in Drawing. I have also enjoyed courses in printmaking and life drawing.
I am a member of the Queensland Wildlife Art Society of Australia, the Wildlife Art Society of Australasia and the Bowral & District Art Society and have conducted workshops for the Sydney Society of Conservation Biology.
