I am an artist living in the rainforest on the east coast of Australia.
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.
I love drawing old houses. I started this sitting in my car and later finished drawing the details in while in my studio.
I made this drawing for my niece's birthday. It is her wearing the armour. The wolf represents her ancestors.
I could have gone further, but I kind of lost interest in this one. Normally I would have put some texture indicating bricks and a bit more detail.
I had a lot of fun with this drawing. It later made me think of Arya in the Game of Thrones - though she never needed armour. Still, surely that little sword is Needle.
My family used to go to the same cabins at Netart’s Bay every year for a week at the beach. A happy memory.
I love drawing at the local boat harbour. I usually begin the drawing while I am there but later finish it in my studio.
Drawn in my moleskine sketchbook with a fountain pen. I am having so much fun with my women in armour series. Can you tell that she has leather armour on? I am not sure how well that is conveyed.
