Hi, I’m Fiona Kat Pickersgill-Lokot!

South-East Melbourne, Australia.
Born-and-bred country bumpkin living in the outer southeast ’burbs. Gippslander at heart. Crazy animal lady, aspiring writer, avid reader of sci fi, geek, book nerd.

About My Art

My drawings and paintings are all by hand, unless otherwise noted, with minimal digital alteration to make them suitable for RedBubble products. My preferred media are watercolour pencils, coloured pencils, graphite pencils, ink fineliner pens, and acrylic paints.

My inspirations are drawn from a variety of sources: nature, wildlife, domestic animals, vertebrate palaeontology, mediaeval religious woodcut art and iconography, UFO symbolism, sci-fi and fantasy, the richly diverse landscapes of Victoria, literature, my dreams and nightmares, and music. My ancestral cultures provide me with a rich visual and mythical heritage that inspires my art, too: namely the Celts, the Ancient Norse, and the Anglo-Saxons.

I originally hail from the rural town of Leongatha in the state of Victoria, Australia.

Decluttering my creative writing collection on RedBubble

2 May 2016 / Over the almost eight years I’ve been a RedBubble user, I amassed a huge collection of creative short stories and poetry in my portfolio. As much as I loved most of those old writings, it was time to declutter.
