My work has always been driven by my love for colour and detail. I express themes of nature, the natural shifts and flows of the environment and cultural in influences from my travels through my illustrations. I am drawn to curating artwork that provokes belonging, tranquility and some curiosity. My creative process begins with sketches and drawings in ink, forming compositions and designs full of detail that follow a fl oral and nature inspired narrative. Colour is key in my work and I use a range of mediums to form my palettes, from hand painting with Gouache to digitally colouring my hand drawn designs through Photoshop, Procreate and illustrator.
