I am an artist living in the rainforest on the east coast of Australia.
This is a drawing from my new Crone series, where I explore ancient archetypes of older women.
A strong old crone in a ram cloak with a three raven brooch. The matriarch of her tribe.
Nyx is the goddess before manifestation begins, the daughter of Chaos. She is the Eternal Darkness before there was light. Mother of numerous primordial powers such as Death, Sleep, the Fates, Nemesis and Old Age.
A little doodle today in my sketchbook.
I have been drawing quite a few women in armor, most of them with animals. This was the first one in the midst of an action pose. It was fun to draw.
I am experimenting with gouache and watercolour. Here is a witch I painted into my sketchbook.
Our community has been suffering from terrible floods, it seems like it is time to get used to a new reality.
Did you have one of these as a child? I had multiples, every size from one that doubled as an eraser that you could fit on your pencil, to the extra large size, she must have been 10 inches high. Trolls were great with all their hair colours. My sister and I made them clothes and sent them on adventures.
Fooling around with the #mermay prompts and gouache.
‘the Hunter’ Who is the hunter, the person or the fox? We often assume everything (including the title of this drawing) is about the human being. In this case 'the Hunter' refers to the fox (with the prey in her mouth). There are a diverse world of ‘beings’, all living their stories.
This started out with an interest in drawing ferns and foliage, then surprised me by becoming a self portrait.
Another house that I found interesting, this one is across from the library in my local town. I love drawing all the vegetation detail - how the buildings decay and are slowly taken over by plants.
I recently finished this sketch of an interesting house in a town about an hour away. I was fascinated by all that was going on.
An angel, a nature spirit of great power - whichever way of describing her that you are comfortable with. She is a force in protecting all of nature.
Dancing in the air above a flood, she throws away her sword.
A cute shopping area in our local Arts & Industry Estate.
I wanted to draw a house that had been destroyed.
Just a house I found interesting in the nearest town.
I am enjoying drawing these girls in armour guarding animals. Not quite sure all that they symbolise, but I trust that will come over time.
I had some time in town waiting for my car to be checked. They took a long time, but I didn’t really mind as I had my sketchbook with me. Nearby was a park with a bench looking at this charming scene.
