Sybbie was my most favourite aunt, unconventional, full of life and wicked humour.This photograph was voted into the Top Ten of the Rustic Group challenge “Well Aged People" and the Mood & Ambi(e)nce challenge ‘Old Wise Women’

My style is contemporary whilst firmly rooted in realism. I work in a number of mediums, including pastel, charcoal and conte, pen and ink, gouache, watercolour, acrylics, pencil, photography, and mixed media, and am currently painting in oils. I find that changing and experimenting with mediums keeps me fresh and open to learning. I especially love capturing the human face and figure in oils, and photographing the urban landscape, including the amazing graffiti to be found in Melbourne.

    I love portraits like this one Roz. Their lines I see as beauty …records of laughter and sadness. Quite a gem of a shot. ~ Anni :)

    Love this intense portrait ,Lina. These eyes have seen many, many things: the coming of b/w moving pictures, then color, TV in a home, up to wall mounted LCD’s not even to think about all the family and friends that have hugged her and loved her, many of whom have gone away. Wow! Beautiful.
