Fluffy Duck

There are many native animals on display at at Blackbutt Nature Reserve in Newcastle, Australia. Some are kept in purpose built enclosures, while others are left to roam freely about the reserve.

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.
