Painted in acrylic with ink, and pastel incorporated. Original work on display at Big Sky Gallery Bellingen, from 6th November – 3rd December 2010.

Sold mounted print to unknown buyer

I am an artist from the North Coast of NSW, utilizing my Graphic Design skills to generate thought processes in Adobe Photoshop. I then translate my designs onto canvas using mixed media, ie acrylic, ink, pastel, gold leaf etc. I also work intuitively with colour straight onto the canvas letting the flow of paint dictate the composition. I can relate to the Bowerbird, as I am drawn to blues and turquoises, collecting my treasures from the artists universe to produce my work.

  • Thanks Jennifer. Would you believe the canvas started life red. Then had bodies on it and finally turned into this strange landscape.
