Original mixed media (acrylic, pastel, ink) on paper card. Botticelli inspired, created especially for a lady whom I’ve never met, but am doing an online Fine Arts degree through Curtin University. I hope the lady likes it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Wishing all my beautiful friends a very merry xmas xxooxx

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.

    And to you, Cate. We’re having a home one this year, with our boy coming up for a few days. This year, there’s little rest for the wicked, as I’m working on the 24th, 31st and the 1st of Jan. Just as well I’m not a hardened New Year’s Eve boozer…

  • It will be great to have all the family together. Sending you guys big hugs and loads of love xxx
