Before I start, I take time to connect with the animals and imagine being in their world - to listen to them so I can tell their story. I take all the time and care I need to perfect each mark I make. This is my way of honouring their story and respecting them at the deepest level of my being. It’s a slow and deliberate process that unfolds one stroke at a time.
After the devastating bush fires in 2019 and early 2020 in my home country of Australia I was invited to participate in "100 Artworks for a Koala - Konservation Project" through non-profit organisation Living With Koalas. 100 Australian based artists will provide an original artwork relating to koalas. This is an auction led event on an international scale where funds generated will be used for awareness programmes and school visits as well as funding LWK koala food tree nurturing and planting programme. The event will commence in January, 2021.
