MM: Tell us a little about your artistic background.
I’ve always been very passionate about art from a young age, but it’s really only been in the last year that I’ve started to take my art seriously and sell my work professionally. I now run my own business and sell my artwork online and to stores around Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. I have showcased my work in a few exhibitions, a major one being The Creative Generation exhibition that launched at the Gallery of Modern Art Brisbane, touring onto eight regional galleries throughout Queensland. I most recently had work exhibited at the West End Block Party festival. I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Fine Art – Interactive and Visual Design with a minor in Visual Art. 

MM: What medium would you consider your art to be?
I primarily use traditional mediums of graphite, inks, watercolour, and acrylic paint and transfer the works digitally. My work varies from design based to illustration, painting and printmaking. I explore concepts that focus on the beauty of nature and growth over time with common representations of flora and fauna throughout my works. I strive on fine detailing and line work to capture the true delicacy of foliage. I like to create these dreamy worlds of overgrown foliage, mystical creatures and objects displaced and out of the ordinary.

MM: Who inspires you?
Some of my favourite artists include Leonardo Da Vinci, Salvador Dali, Arthur Rackham, Tim Walker and many others. But I’ve always been most inspired by nature. It seems to be a common thread of exploration throughout my works and there is always something new to discover. I’m always influenced by the world around me, from small creatures in the garden to antique shops and my room full of teacups.

MM: What do you hope to achieve within the creative community?
In the future I hope to continue supporting myself as an artist and to share my work with the world. I hope to inspire people and establish networks and collaborations with the many other creative people out there.

MM: Where can our readers check out more of your work?
I’m currently working on a piece for an upcoming exhibition Interwoven. The exhibition will be held on the 14th November at QUT’s The Block, showcasing the works of design graduates. Prints, postcards and stationary of my artwork are available in select stores around Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. You can find details of my artwork on my website . Keep up to date with my latest works on Facebook or my blog.
