Examples of some of my work. Some pieces may end up as prints in the future but most won't. Just wanted to give you lovely folks some more eye candy!
I was born on the precipice of the punk era in the North West of England, and was always busy doing something creative (or dangerous) as a child. I left high school to go to art college in Merseyside then on to study silver jewellery making in Manchester before moving to Australia in 1998. Since then I have found inspiration in the raw nature of Australia. I lived in the Southwest for 11 years where I pursued a jewellery career creating silver and semi precious gemstone pieces inspired by the local flora and fauna. Our next move was to the Northern suburbs of Melbourne where I was busy creating art on skin as a custom tattoo artist.
Now in Southern Tasmania I once again find myself drawn to the nature all around me. I enjoy spending time watching birds in our bush garden, fungi foraging and hiking (well more of a slow walk punctuated with lots of stops to study plants or wildlife!) I am drawn to, and passionate about, nature and conservation. I love to take the time to examine details in the environment that might otherwise go unnoticed and re-create them in my works, utilising pattern, hypercolour and scale to experience them in new ways.
