The home of wildlife and pet portraits
As a child, I always wanted to create, and growing up in the outback allowed me incredible freedom to explore and imagine.
I am primarily self-taught but have had some formal training studying life drawing, colour theory, mixing paint, and brush control. I also enjoyed studying how the 'Old Masters' created their pieces and learning how to adapt some of their techniques into my own work.
Art is the best therapy and throughout the process, I find it incredibly fulfilling to see a painting come together. I also find it extremely rewarding to work with my commission clients and help bring their vision into reality and onto canvas.
I have a passion for wildlife and illustration and hope to evoke wonder and delight in the simple pleasures many of us share with the natural world.
My primary medium used is acrylic and on occasion watercolour, as I enjoy the challenge and reward the mediums do bring during creation and the magical way I can enhance detail with selected brushes, both mediums complementary to the way I interpret animals through art.
We treat our pets as part of the family and even when they pass we hold memories that last a lifetime. A beautiful sentiment that drives my passion to create pet portraits for others.
My primary medium is either Acrylic or Watercolour paint on canvas or paper and I look forward to working with you throughout the painting process to ensure the essence of the pet portrait is captured.
I also have additional wildlife and contemporary artwork available on my Bluethumb site, you can visit it here
